ARNOLD, Mo. (KOLR) – There are plenty of ways to handle a coworker who is getting on your nerves.
One Missouri man had an interesting way of dealing with this everyday problem…
He spiked their drinks with LSD.
“I can’t believe it. It’s ridiculous. I just can’t understand why anyone would think about something like that.”
“Terrible. He should be arrested”
That was the reaction from just a few people who live in Arnold, Missouri, near St. Louis.
Police say the man told them his coworkers at Enterprise Rent-A-Car had “negative energy,” and he wanted them to mellow out. So the 19-year-old put LSD in three people’s water bottles and coffee cups.
Sergeant Tony Dennis, with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, describes the effects of the colorless, odorless liquid.
“You’re going to have an increased heart rate, temperature, higher blood pressure. It’s been described as causing the shakes or tremors,” Dennis said.
The workers who drank the LSD were okay, once the effects wore off.
The man accused of spiking their drinks could face charges of second-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance.
