Things got a little weird last month at an Enterprise Rent A Car location outside St. Louis, MO. An employee that thought his fellow co-workers needed an attitude adjustment took it upon himself to try to make that adjustment. What he did was probably a most terrifying way of trying to help. He definitely didn’t help. The helpless co-workers were at the mercy of one of the most infamous mind-altering substances – Lysergic acid diethylamide or LSD. Acid. Microdots. Doses. Blotter. Call it what you will. For the 19-year-old (former) employee of Enterprise, he might be calling it responsible for some jail time.
According to reports, the unidentified man was an employee of an Enterprise branch in Arnold, Missouri, outside of St. Louis and thought his coworkers “were too uptight, and they needed to have better energy,” and apparently he set out to change that energy with a couple of drops of acid in their water.
The manager of the branch, who was also not identified by name, told police that “the suspect was ‘acting weird’ that morning and she saw him allegedly holding a water dropper and ‘messing with’ her water jug, but she didn’t drink from it, the report said.”
LSD comes in a few different forms, but one is a clear, odorless and tasteless liquid, presumably what the suspect here used. Using the eye-dropped to administer the acid and while the manager avoided her water, two other employees did not.
The two other employees, identified as a 24-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were transported first to an urgent care center nearby before being taken to the hospital after they “began to feel weird and dizzy.”
Weird and dizzy is only the beginning, you can be sure it got a lot weirder from there.
It’s probably safe to assume that it was a long night for the two poor co-workers who were assaulted with this mind-bending experience. There is probably nothing more terrifying that tripping face without a clue as to what is going on. In the end, there was nothing left for them to do except to dim the lights and put on some Allman Brothers.
As for the culprit, he could face second-degree assault charges and a possession charge.
