My 11th grade science teacher told our class about a "prank" he had pulled on an assistant years before. He said as a first day/welcome joke he dumped a spoonful of powdered caffeine into the man's coffee, which un-hilariously landed the poor guy in an ambulance.

So what happened to him after he nearly killed the assistant?

This was in Idaho, so he probably got a raise ;D I don't remember if his story included his punishment, if there was one, but he was clearly still teaching years later. He also told us that he once awarded extra credit to a group of students who figured out how to make denatured alcohol potable. Their (apparently successful) experiment was off the books, and he said he only figured it out when they appeared tipsy during class.
