The coffee was strong, but had the wrong kind of kick.

An Arkansan woman has been arrested for allegedly slipping Valium into her boss's coffee because she felt "he needed to chill out," according to reports. 

Police said Erin S. Kelly, 24, admitted to detectives that she slipped the drugs into veteranarian John Duckett's drink, a Fox affiliate in Bryant reported. Officers said Duckett knew something was wrong shortly after drinking some of the coffee Tuesday morning.

Officers said the woman cleaned the cages at the the Reynolds Road Animal Clinic.

A judge set bond at $25,000 Friday and a jailer said the woman was still being held Friday. Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 21.
