HOUMA -- A woman who police say sprayed cologne on at least local two men, leaving them feeling ill and light-headed, has been arrested.

Patches Wegmann, 22, 1449 Spanish Oaks Drive in Harvey, is charged with simple battery and unlawful solicitation. [...]

The incident remains under investigation, and authorities say it’s not clear that anything other than perfume was sprayed on either man. [...]

Both incidents are remarkably similar to an urban legend that has been circulated via the Internet for years. [...]
