CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police said an Alexander County High School student is accused of slipping a pill into his teacher's drink.
 
They said he thought by giving her the herbal supplement Horny Goat Weed it would help get her fired.
 
“The teacher walked into her classroom and saw students messing with something," said school resource officer Michael Millsaps.
 
Taylorsville police said a student was putting something in her drink out of revenge after the teacher took away the student's Chrome Book in class, but the 15-year-old boy tossed out the drink he tampered with before she got to it.
 
Police said he put Horny Goat Weed in her drink.
 
It's typically used for joint pain, high blood pressure, memory loss and fatigue. The bottle also said it is used for "vital energy" for men.

"The student took a pill and crushed it to a powder before putting it in his teacher's drink. They said he thought if she took it, it might change her behavior,” according to investigators.
 
"He just heard the word 'weed' and thought it was maybe some marijuana-type pill," said Millsaps. "He wanted the teacher to do something stupid and cause her to get fired."
 
This bizarre incident has the student facing an uncommon, but serious charge.
 
Distributing of certain food at Halloween and all other times prohibited is considered a felony offense.
 
Police received reports the teen may have given out other pills to some students.
 
They are investigating whether others may be trying to pull a similar prank.
