According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Department, 40-year-old Noel Santoro has been charged with three counts of second-degree endangerment charges.
The Sheriff's office says a woman noticed the capsules to her 6-year-old son's medication were empty, and it appeared as though the capsules had been taken apart, empties and put back together and returned to the original bottle.
A school official called the woman and said her child was not behaving normally and asked if the student was receiving his medications.
Investigation revealed Santoro to be the suspect responsible for emptying the prescription pills and consuming their contents.
During an interview, Santoro admitted to investigators that he took the medication and placed the empty capsules back in the bottle on three separate occasions, knowing that the medication was to be given to the child.
It was also determined that Santoro had consumed the medication.
Santoro was taken to the Baxter County Jail where he is now being held on a no-bond hold for a probation violation from the district court.
He has also been prohibited from having any contact with the child, according to the Sheriff's office.
