Odessa Police arrested a 15-year-old boy for spitting in an Arizona Tea bottle and putting it back for someone else to drink.

An officer wrote in a sworn affidavit that they were dispatched to the Albertsons on North County Road West Monday night.

The affidavit states that security footage showed the teen pick up a drink, put his mouth on it, then put it back.

The affidavit goes on to say the teen told the asset protection manager before the police officer arrived that he spit in it.

The teen reportedly repeated to the officer that he took a drink of the tea, then put it back, because it was "gross."

He's charged with tampering with a consumer product, which is a second degree felony.

He's being held in the Ector County Youth Center.
