SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida teenager is accused of trying to poison his teacher by putting hand sanitizer in her Diet Coke.

The Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/1fVdwiB) reports that the 15-year-old was arrested Tuesday and charged with poisoning his teacher’s drink. The charge is a first-degree felony.

Walton County Superintendent of Schools Carlene Anderson told the paper that the teacher is fine, though she became physically ill and went to the hospital after drinking the tainted soda.

Anderson says South Walton High 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.
