A California dermatologist has been arrested for allegedly poisoning her husband and causing him serious injuries after he told police he became sick and handed them video evidence he says proves his claim.

Yue P. Yu, 45, was arrested on Thursday night around 6 pm outside her dermatology office located in Mission Viejo, Lt. Bill Bingham told DailyMail.com.

Bingham said that the husband, who has not yet been named, called the Irvine Police Department earlier in day on Thursday and shared with them that he was ‘being poisoned by his wife’ and said he had ‘video evidence to share.’ 

‘Our officers reviewed the video,’ he said. 

No motive for the shocking crime has emerged. Yu, who works at the Providence Healthcare system in Mission Viejo, has had her work headshot removed from her employer’s website.

A spokesman said they were cooperating with police.

‘The allegations that were made by the husband was incredibly serious and we thought it was important to take quick investigative action on the case based on the allegation.’

Bingham was not able to disclose the type of poison the husband ingested but said he began to develop symptoms that worsened over the last month.

He said the husband did seek medical treatment once he became ill but was unable to provide details to whether a blood test revealed the poison in his bloodstream.

‘Due to the integrity of the case it appears the poisoning happened over a period of time,’ Bingham said.

The husband told officers he had  suspected she had been poisoning him and set up surveillance video to confirm it. 

They lived together in a $2.7 million home in Irvine, California. 

The attack is said to have left the husband badly injured, although he is now recovering from his injuries.
