A baker at a Perkins Restaurant in Vadnais Heights has pleaded guilty to peeing in a co-worker's bottled water.
Conrrado Cruz Perez, 47, was charged with adulteration by bodily fluid, a crime only introduced to Minnesota statutes recently.
It comes after he repeatedly urinated into the water bottle of a co-worker with whom he had previously shown romantic interest, but who had rejected his advances.
The 47 year old from Minneapolis had been charged with misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor crimes and appeared in Ramsey County District Court this week.
The Pioneer Press reports he pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor count, with the gross misdemeanor count dropped.

He'll be placed on a year's probation and have to follow a series of mental health recommendations.
The 41-year-old co-worker told police she'd only noticed her water tasting bad after telling Perez "she only wanted to be friends with him," his criminal complaint states.
Since that time, she said there had been about 15 instances of urine taste in her water bottle at work.
