GROVELAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. – An Oakland County teenager has been charged for concocting a dangerous mixture with drain cleaner and throwing it on her father, leaving him unconscious with burns all over his body, officials said.

The incident happened Friday (Oct. 1) at a home in Groveland Township, according to state police.

Troopers said Megan Joyce Imirowicz, 18, of Groveland Township, threw Lye drain cleaner and water on her father. The water catalyzed the chemical reaction and caused the burns, police said.

Imirowicz then left her father unconscious and alone at the home, where he remained until a neighbor discovered him with burns all over his body, according to officials.

Police said the man arrived at Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc with chemical burns to his head, torso and extremities. When they went to the house to investigate, they said they found Lye powder on the couch, where the man had been found.

Imirowicz was arrested and taken to the Oakland County Jail. She was arraigned Wednesday at 52-2 District Court and charged with one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and one count of domestic violence.

Imirowicz received a $75,000 personal recognizance bond and has been released pending further court proceedings.
