A Kentucky teen was taken into custody after he attempted to poison his mother with bleach.

Kentucky State Police arrested 18-year-old Justin Adkins Sunday after his mother called law enforcement for help.

Adkins' mother said he had poured bleach into her drink. An officer smelled the drink and identified the scent of bleach.

Adkins told police he did put bleach in her drink, but "only a little bit". He claimed he only wanted his mom to get sick, not die.

Adkins was charged with wanton endangerment and assault. He was booked and released from the Pike County Detention Center on Sunday.
