LAKELAND (Newsradio 970 WFLA) - Polk County Deputies have arrested a Lakeland middle school student for spiking his teacher's drinking water with hand sanitizer. 

Investigators say the 14-year-old boy put the sanitizer into the water when the teacher stepped outside the classroom at Crystal Lake Middle School. 

When the teacher returned to her desk, she took a sip of water and noticed that it had a funny taste. She took the lid off the cup and detected the odor of hand sanitizer. 

She went to the hospital after experiencing a headache and stomach ache.
