No charges for prank with supplement-laced brownies

CLINTON (WKOW) -- Three students who laced brownies with a male enhancement supplement will not face criminal charges, according to Rock County District Attorney David O'Leary.

The Clinton High School students made the brownies as a senior prank and added a male enhancement herbal supplement identified as Zyrexin.

The students gave the brownies to students at Clinton High School and number of students who ate them suffered adverse effects and were taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

All three students admitted their actions and took responsibility for what they intended as a senior prank, according to a news release from the DA's office.

The matter was referred to the district attorney for a review of potential criminal charges, but O'Leary determined there was never an intent to cause bodily harm to another person and therefore no criminal charges are warranted.

At a pre-charging conference with the district attorney, all three students expressed sincere regret for their actions, offered an apology to the school, police chief and their fellow students effected by their actions and will be covering any out-of-pocket medical expense incurred by the victims of their senior prank.

The matter is therefore closed with no charges warranted.
