Disinfectant put in coffee; woman arrested

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a 31-year-old Denham Springs woman on accusations she squirted a disinfectant into a co-worker's coffee cup with the intent of injuring the woman.

Deputies tell The Advocate Cristina Collica was booked on a count of mingling harmful substances.

Deputies say video surveillance footage from Feb. 1 allegedly shows Collica grab a can of disinfectant from a window sill near an employee break area and put the substance into the victim's coffee cup.

The woman who drank the disinfectant reported feeling sick soon afterward and left work to seek medical attention.

It wasn't clear in the arrest affidavit where the act took place or whether Collica knew the other woman.

It was unclear whether Collica has an attorney.
