My Coffee Tastes Weird?!?!

A suburban Chicago man has been sentenced to three years in prison for spiking an office coffee maker because he was angry at his bosses. A Cook County judge imposed the sentence Thursday on Kemarat Vathananand, 51, of Skokie.

Vathananand, who was initially also charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to felony food tampering and faced a maximum prison term of seven years.

Vathananand dumped a variety of substances into the coffee maker, including urine and a toxic solvent called lead acetate, over several months last year at a Schiller Park metal-finishing plant where worked for 15 years, Cook County prosecutors said.

He had apparently become enraged when his bosses told him he couldn't drink coffee in a shop area of Castle Metal Finishing, according to Schiller Park Police.

Many employees had complained of feeling ill and of vomiting after drinking the coffee — though no one was ever seriously injured.

After one employee had a sample of the coffee tested and found it contained lead acetate, company staff contacted police. Authorities installed a hidden security camera last October that captured Vathananand pouring liquids into the coffee maker.
