Teymouri of St. Louis Park is accused of bringing the weed treats for co-workers at a Chaska real estate firm where the receptionist's daughter ended up so sick she went to the hospital.
At least he didn't drop tranquilizers in someone's coffee so they would "chill out".
According to the criminal complaint cited in the Pioneer Press report, he brought the brownies Match 3 and left them on the receptionist's desk.
He then motioned for the receptionist to follow him into another room, where he explained to her that the brownies were for her and they had "weed" in them, according to the complaint.The woman received a drug test at the hospital, which showed evidence that she had consumed THC, a substance found in marijuana.
The receptionist later told Chaska police she thought he was joking, but when she returned to her desk, her 22-year-old daughter was eating a brownie. The victim, identified only as H.M. in the complaint, said the brownies tasted horrible and threw hers out after a few bites.
A half an hour later, she said her vision was blurry, her stomach was upset, she felt shaky and her heart was beating fast.
Teymouri is scheduled to make an April 20 court appearance.
