A restaurant worker in Spotsylvania County has been charged with trying to harm two of his co-workers.
Authorities say the two co-workers noticed the drinks they kept at the wait station smelled and tasted of bleach. They informed their manager, who called police.
During the investigation, Johnson allegedly told police he accidentally got bleach into the drinks while cleaning the station.
But after further questioning, police said Johnson was never responsible for cleaning the station, and that Johnson admitted to tainting the drinks on purpose.
Johnson never explained why he did it, police said. He was being held without bond at the regional jail.
