WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis (WSAU)   A 50-year-old man will spend the next 200 days in jail for drugging a woman's drink. Michael Shanahan pled guilty in Wood County Court yesterday as part of a plea bargain.

The incident happened last September. The victim was a female bartender who allowed another customer to buy her a drink. She told police that she left the bar for a brief time. A surveillance camera showed Shanahan put his hand over her glass for several moments.

The victim went to Riverview Hospital where she tested positive for Benzodiazepine. She said her drink tasted sweeter, and that she felt light-head and nausea.
