Madison Southern student arrested after spiking teacher's drink

03.04.08 04:02 PM – Andy McDonald
A student at Madison Southern High School was arrested after he allegedly poured alcohol into a teacher's drink.

According to police the incident took place last Friday when a 15-year-old male brought alcohol from home to school.

“He drank some of the alcohol while on school property, but he also poured some of it into a teacher's drink,” said Capt. Ken Clark.

The teacher, who was unnamed in the report, reportedly had left a soft drink unattended, at which point the student poured alcohol into the drink.

“When the teacher went back to take a drink, she brought it up to her face and smelled the alcohol,” Clark said. (article continues below)

The police report noted that the student in question said he spiked the teacher's drink because “he wanted to have some fun.” The report further noted that other students were aware that he was in possession of alcohol.

The student was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor and menacing. The police report did not state what prompted the menacing charge, Clark said. He was released to the custody of his parents.

In other news, three juveniles were detained in connection with several area thefts.

According to police, a 16-year-old male was detained Feb. 25 for receiving stolen property over $300, theft, and criminal mischief second-degree. The following day, a 15 year-old male was also detained for receiving stolen property over $300, theft, and criminal mischief second degree.

Police said the criminal mischief charges were filed because the youths damaged some of the vehicles they burglarized.

Clark said the youths were found to be in possession of over $800 worth of stolen property. The pair is thought to be responsible for a rash of car break-ins, Clark said. Both youths were released to the custody of their parents.

A 17-year-old male, meanwhile, was detained for receiving stolen property when he allegedly tried to purchase one of the stolen CD players from the other two juvenile suspects. He was charged with receiving stolen property over $300 and released to the custody of his parents.
