A tennis club in New Jersey has been forced to close earlier today and shut down its water supply after police identified crystal meth was in their water supply.
A tennis player at the club was hit in the eye when a spurt of water containing crystal meth struck them.
The tennis club in New Jersey remains shut and its water supply is still closed off, after a chunk of crystal meth came out of a tap and struck a tennis player in the eye earlier today.
New Jersey police analysed the flying item and confirmed it was crystal-meth – a very dangerous and highly addictive drug.
Following further investigation by the police, it was found that more crystal-meth was found in multiple locations within the tennis club, including the toilets.
Luckily the tennis player was not injured after being struck in the eye by the flying crystal meth.
Nearby residents were later reassured by the New Jersey Police that the tennis club has a filter to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the neighbouring water supply.
New Jersey state officials carried out further checks to see if any other areas of the state had been affected by crystal-meth, but none was found.
Police are continuing to investigate how the crystal meth entered the water supply at the tennis club.
New Jersey Police said: “Earlier today at about 9am police officer Danny McTurt went to a tennis club regarding a tennis player that had been struck in the eye with a piece of crystal meth.”
“As soon as police officer Danny McTurt arrived on scene, he immediately determined that the flying object was the illegal drug crystal meth.”
“It was later found that a large amount of crystal meth had been injected into the tennis clubs water system.”
“To stop the potential for contamination of the local area water supply we have cut the water supply to and from the tennis club. New Jersey water officials have determined that there was no contamination to the local water supply due to crystal meth being introduced to the tennis clubs water system.”
It went on: “The New Jersey Police were contacted regarding this incident and are handling the potential hazardous material situation. Our police officers will continue with the criminal investigation to find out who at the tennis club shoved this large amount of crystal meth into the clubs water supply.”
When asked by journalists if the World Tennis Federation would demand all tennis clubs check their water supply for crystal meth contamination, the WTF replied “Are you mad, the chances of another club having crystal meth in their water supply is a billion to one. This is clearly a drug user at the tennis club stashing their crystal meth there for safe keeping, but it got into the water supply. This person is clearly an idiot.”
