A couple in Ohio were arrested on felony charges Thursday for allegedly giving laxative-laced cookies to striking school employees, WQAD reported.
Bo Cosens, 29, and Rachel Sharrock, 25, had allegedly posted threatening Facebook videos saying they were irritated by the noise caused by cars honking in support of the strikers. The couple was originally arrested over a tip about one of Cosen’s Facebook videos that suggested he intended to shoot the strikers. Police said they watched the video that also showed the couple laughing as they crushed laxatives into the cookie batter.
Police reportedly plan to test the cookies for laxatives. Cosens and Sharrock are being held on a $1 million bond and are charged with contaminating a substance for human consumption, complicity, permitting drug abuse and disorderly conduct.
