2 security officers accused of trying to poison supervisor with eyedrops in coffee

 Andrew Doty, 47, and Hunter Howard, 30, worked at The Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where they are alleged to have put eyedrops in their security supervisor’s personal coffee maker, Beaufort County Sheriff’s Maj. Bob Bromage said.

Another employee alerted the management staff, and the supervisor did not end up drinking the spiked coffee, Bromage said.

Authorities were contacted, and Doty and Howard were arrested Friday. They were charged with tampering with a human drug product or food item, a felony, the sheriff’s office said. The charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Eyedrops can be dangerous when they are overused or taken inappropriately. An ingredient in eyedrops causes sleepiness, low blood pressure and a dangerously slow heart rate when it is used in high amounts or ingested, according to the National Capital Poison Center.
