Police: Teens poisoned Wisconsin teacher's drink as prank

Posted:

GILLETT, Wis. (AP) -- A teacher in northeastern Wisconsin went to the hospital after being poisoned in what two students told police was a prank.

Police say the Gillett Secondary School teacher noticed a strange smell coming from a bottle of soda he had left unattended Tuesday afternoon. Police talked to a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, who said they put a small amount of cleaning solution in the bottle.

Police say the teacher was treated at a hospital. School Superintendent Todd Carlson tells WLUK-TV the teacher was back at school Wednesday.

The school board will discuss punishment for the students.
