Israeli police have arrested the owner of a pizzeria in the city of Holon who sprinkled a drug known as ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ on a pizza order belonging to two policemen, The Times of Israel reported.

The pizza peppered with the drug, which reportedly turned out to be synthetic marijuana, left the two policemen in the Tel Aviv area hospitalized for dizziness, vomiting and hallucinations.

“I knew the order was placed by police officers, but the officer who called it in seemed cool – plus he told me to add whatever toppings I wanted. So, instead of oregano, I sprinkled some ‘Mr. Nice Guy,’” the pizzeria owner confessed to investigating police several days later.

A spokesperson for the police confirmed that remains from the pizza have been sent to a lab for testing but results have not yet been released.
