(KSL News) A prank could land a Salt Lake man in jail. Police say the 18-year-old poured car care chemicals into the soda of a co-worker at Strong Volkswagen downtown.

He told the co-worker what he had done, but the man still drank the soda, thinking it was a joke.

Immediately after he began drinking the soda, he started coughing and having breathing troubles. He had to be hospitalized.

The teen is now charged with a second-degree felony and could face up to 15 years in prison.
