An employee of a Folsom, Calif., car dealership was arrested Thursday after trying to poison his boss, according to police.
Specifically, People's Chrysler Plymouth employee Howard Johnson Holzer sprayed clear brake cleaner in his supervisor's bag of potato chips, than left them on his desk, police say.
No one ate the tainted chips.
"They work in an environment with a lot of chemicals," observed Folsom Police Department spokeswoman Sharon Roloff. The boss might not have smelled it, she added, because "there is that chemical smell in the air."
Other employees said Holzer had threatened them in the past.
