Mich. Man Jailed After Handshake Sickens 3
A man has been jailed on assault charges after a prosecutor, police officer and courtroom bailiff became seriously ill after shaking hands with him.
During a Dec. 21 court appearance on a traffic charge, John Ridgeway pulled out a vial of an unknown liquid, rubbed his hands with the contents and insisted on shaking hands with the three people, authorities said.
All of them got sick within an hour, suffering from nausea, headaches, numbness and tingling that lasted about a day. Two sought treatment at a hospital.

All of this over a traffic ticket. The guy might be right, maybe it really was olive oil, and the cops faked sickness to make him pay for taking the ticket to a jury trial?

If as they contend, this guy smeared a toxic substance on his hands that after shaking the guy's hand they fell ill, why is this guy not also sick or even dead?
If he applied a substance to his skin that was toxic enough to harm three other people just by shaking their hands, the guy would have taken a lethal or near lethal dose himself unless he had previously applied somekind of protection ala 007 or a ninja.
