Anthony Gerald Dunton has allegedly confessed to a bizarre crime: he was reportedly filmed putting Roundup weed killer in the water bottle of a co-worker. When he confessed to the crime, Dunton insisted that he was only trying to “mess with him.”
The co-worker in Georgia thought that his water tasted odd and was suspicious when it formed when shaken. The co-worker set up a camera and captured Dunton removing the bottle and then returning with it. This was done four or five times. Even worse for Dunton are videotapes showing him wiping off the bottle to apparently remove the fingerprints.
He is now charged with four counts of aggravated assault, though I am not sure why this crime does not meet the standard for attempted murder. He was released after making bond.
He may want to find a lawyer because the “just messing’ around” defense is not very promising.
