AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A North Augusta woman has been charged with reckless conduct after allegedly giving her professor a snack cake injected with a foreign substance.

Richmond County Sheriff's Office arrested Diane Ambrose for allegedly giving her professor at Virginia College a snack with a substance in it that puts her at high risk of miscarriage.

Officials say the 12 week pregnant professor became ill with lower intestinal issues two weeks ago after eating a snack cake Ambrose gave her.

The professor says she didn’t make a connection to the snack cake until another student told her an account of what happened.

Officials say that student says Ambrose injected the snack cake through the wrapper with a substance that would cause her to be on the toilet all day, but would not harm her fetus.

The witness says she didn’t say anything until she heard the professor had been ill.
