WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) -- A Waterbury man is facing a list of charged after police say he tried to poison his boos by sprinkling poison in his oatmeal.
Although there was no weapon used at this Waterbury Park and Recreation facility, police are clear there was an attack.
"I think this would definitely be considered workplace violence," Captain Chris Corbett said.
43-year-old William Lampron is accused of poisoning his boss's oatmeal.
"He has been sick for two weeks, very severe stomach pain. He was concerned someone was poisoning him so he kept some oatmeal at his desk, he looked through it, and noticed there was some inconsistencies in the oatmeal," Capt. Corbett said.
According to Waterbury Police, the supervisor kept oatmeal in his desk, a desk that was located in a common area. When the supervisor wasn't around, according to police, Lampron took what is known as SpeedyDry. SpeedyDry is an absorbent and he would mix the two together and then the supervisor would eat it.
"We interviewed Mr. Lampron, and he admitted to it. It was a form of retaliation. He intentionally put SpeedyDry in his supervisor's oatmeal," Capt. Corbett said.
News 8 went to Lampron's Naugatuck home where he scurried inside as News 8 drove up and no one answered the door.
We don't know how long Lampron was having a feud with his boss, but we do know this, he was four months until his retirement.
"He felt his supervisor should ease off on him, not make him work as hard," Capt. Corbett said.
Lampron was charged with second degree assault and posted a $5,000 bond. He's due in court next week. Years of service are now marred by a bizarre attack.
"He's never been in trouble before, a city employee, close to 25 years on the job, never been arrested," Capt. Crobett said.
