The couple reportedly discussed sending the cookies to the workers, who are Claymont City Schools employees, in a second video, according to the Repository.

Authorities in Tuscarawas County in eastern OH say none of the striking workers ate the biscuits, but the couple were charged with contaminating the treats.

The couple who live in Uhrichsville, about 94 miles south of Cleveland, was originally arrested over a tip about one of Cosen's Facebook videos that suggested he meant to shoot the strikers, News 5 Cleveland reported. Sharrock is seen crushing laxative pills and mixing them into cooker batter, reports say.

According to police, 29-year-old Bo Cosens and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Rachel Sharrock, were upset that drivers passing by the striking workers were disrupting their sleep patterns by honking in a show of support.

The second leg is scheduled for Tuesday in Turin, with the victor to face Manchester City or Tottenham in the semi-finals. However, he insists there is no problem between the players and revealed they discussed it after the game.

Investigators said the workers on the picket line thought the baked goods were Cosens and Sharrock's way of showing their support for their cause, but luckily, no one tried the tainted treats.

Cosens and Sharrock have each been charged with a felony for contaminating a substance for human consumption, and misdemeanors of complicity, disorderly conduct, and permitting drug abuse.

"We are a very close community and it's sad to me that somebody would be that angry about something like this, that they try to hurt somebody", striking school secretary Shannon Talbart told a reporter. "You don't know what kind of reaction somebody is going to have and it's a crime to tamper with food that you're giving to somebody", said Uhrichsville Police Chief Vince Beal.

Police interviewed the protesters, who said they received the cookies but no one ate them. "They should have called the police department with their concerns about the noise and we could have addressed it at that time in a proper way". They are being held on $1 million bond each.
