A Georgia man has been arrested after police say he put weed killer in his co-worker's water bottle.
Multiple news outlets report Anthony Dunton was arrested Saturday and charged with four counts of aggravated assault after police say he put Roundup weed and grass killer in the victim's water.
Acworth police say Dunton's co-worker realized his water tasted funny and foamed when shaken. Police say the co-worker set up a camera in his office and filmed two videos from two different days showing Dunton entering the office, removing the bottle and returning it moments later. The employee alerted management, who alerted police. Authorities arrested Dunton after an investigation.
Dunton's co-worker was not seriously injured, but sought treatment after experiencing kidney pain.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, citing the warrant, reported that Dunton "admitted to placing a small amount of liquid Roundup weed killer in the victim’s water bottle on four to five occasions. The accused claimed he did not want to kill the victim, only "mess with him.'"
It's unclear if Dunton has a lawyer. He was reportedly arrested and charged with four counts of aggravated assault. He was released after posting bond.
