Man Drugged Daughter’s 12-Year-Old Friends, Creeped Over Them

A man from Oregon is in trouble for allegedly drugging his daughter’s 12-year-old friends and watching them as they drifted off to sleep. Michael Meyden turned himself in to authorities after he was indicted on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from the sleepover which happened on Aug. 26, 2023.

Meyden was caught after one of the girls texted her mother at 01:45 a.m. asking to be rescued from the home in Lake Oswego, situated south of Portland.

Per the New York Post, the girl’s text had read, “Mom please pick me up and say I had a family emergency. I don’t feel safe. I might not respond but please come get me (crying emoji), Please. Please pick up. Please. PLEASE!!.”

The three girls reportedly tested positive for benzodiazepine, a depressant that induces sedation and hypnosis. Per a probable cause affidavit, the girls told detectives that Meyden had offered them mango smoothies which he made and “insisted they drink them.”

The smoothies which they were allegedly pressured to drink had “tiny white chunks throughout and sprinkled on top,” as the girls described to authorities.

According to one of the girls, she tried to decline the smoothie but Meyden insisted she try it. She said she had a few sips out of pressure but did not drink much. However, Meyden allegedly monitored how much she drank and got angry that the girls drank from each other’s drinks, insisting they drink out of their own cup.

According to police, one of the girls fell over, blacked out and fell into a “thick, deep sleep” after drinking the smoothie and feeling “woozy, hot and clumsy” right after.

The girl that texted her mother said she managed to stay awake while pretending to be asleep. During that time, she said she could feel him watching her and doing tests to ensure the girls were truly asleep.

Out of fear that Meyden was “going to do something,” the girl texted her mother. However, her parents were reportedly sleeping and she had to reach out to a family friend who came to pick her up.

Having been woken up by the family friend, her parents notified the parents of the other two girls, who went to pick their daughters at 3 a.m. They were reportedly met with resistance by Meyden, who reportedly asked them to return in the morning. However, they insisted.

Meyden faces six felony charges and three misdemeanors, including three counts of application of a Schedule 4 controlled substance to another, three counts of causing another to ingest a controlled substance and three counts of delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.

He and his wife got divorced on Oct. 17, nearly two months after the sleepover. It is unclear if his actions at the sleepover had something to do with their separation.
