MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- Two workers at Arrowhead Mall in Muskogee are facing charges of putting a chemical in the drink of a mall security guard. Michael Winlock of Taft and Nicholas Hobbs of Muskogee are accused of putting xylene in a pitcher of tea that security guard Frank Carvajal used to pour himself a drink.

Carvajal became sick from the drink but officials aren't commenting on his current condition.

Xylene is used as a solvent in the printing and rubber industries, as a cleaning agent for steel and as a paint thinner.

Winlock and Hobbs are free on $10,000 bond each.
