SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A teenager is accused of putting germ-X hand sanitizer in his teacher's Diet Coke.
The 15-year-old was arrested on Tuesday and charged with poisoning his teacher's drink, which is a first-degree felony.
Walton County Superintendent of Schools Carlene Anderson told the Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/1fVdwiB ) the teacher is fine. However, she became physical ill and went to the hospital after drinking the tainted Diet Coke.
Anderson says school officials told her the boy is a "prankster" who didn't intend for the teacher get sick.
In addition to his arrest, the teen has been suspended from school and faces an expulsion hearing.
