A Utah man was arrested Monday after he had spiked his ex-girlfriend’s coffee with methamphetamines.

Forty-one-year-old Alax Joe Curzon who was still living with his ex at the time, reportedly drugged a cup of coffee he made for her. She claimed that she felt “energetic after drinking it, but “crashed” around 1 p.m. and experiencing cold sweats, KSL-TV reported.

The woman described the experience like having a panic attack but not panicking, the affidavit states, according to KSL-TV.

The woman went to see a doctor the next day and did a urine test which confirmed that she did have methamphetamines and amphetamines in her system, according to KSTU.

Around the same time, the woman started to receive “suspicious” messages from Curzon saying that he had never seen a reaction to meth like that before and “telling her she should drink plenty of water and get sleep,” according to KSL-TV.

Curzon admitted to police that he was using meth the same morning that he made coffee for his ex, according to KSTU. Officers tested the unwashed mug for drug residue and it tested positive for traces of methamphetamine or ecstasy.

Curzon was taken into custody and claimed that he may still have drugs on him, according to the outlet. Officers checked him and found a pipe with traces of meth inside.

He is facing charges for surreptitious administering of a substance, drug possession in a jail, drug possession, and assault, according to KSL-TV.
