A man has admitted to urinating in his co-worker’s water bottle but has insisted that he did not do so out of malice. He has now been charged with two counts of adulterating a substance with bodily fluids after he was reported to police by a co-worker.
Conrrado Cruz Perez, aged 47, worked at the local chain restaurant Perez in the St. Paul suburb of Vadnais Heights. He worked there as a baker when he was reported to the police for his behaviour, he was also fired immediately after management found out about his urinary escapades.
It later emerged that a 42-year-old woman had reported him after she became suspicious that he had been urinating in her drink. She had previously rebuffed Conrrado’s attempts at initiating a romantic relationship, and noticed afterwards that there were multiple occasions where her water “tasted like urine”.
Eventually she decided to phone the police who confronted Conrrado about the alleged offence. He initially denied it, but when police pointed out that they could perform forensic tests that would not only confirm the presence of urine, but would allow them to isolate the DNA and find out exactly who did it, he gave in and admitted to urinating in the bottle.
However, and this is the interesting part, Conrrado was adamant he had a good reason for doing so. It was not act committed out of malice, according to him, but rather one out of desperation. He claims that he was busy working and needed the toilet, but he was unable to leave his work station due to high demand from customers. In the heat of the moment he grabbed a nearby bottle and relieved himself in it. Later on he realised it belonged to a co-worker and saw her drinking out of it, but decided it would be best to not admit to the crime but rather just let it slide.
