The victims got violently ill during their varsity team practice at Stuyvesant High earlier this month after ingesting the energy drinks laced with the fungicide copper sulfate.
Wide receiver Nick Heim and running back Michael Bucaoto were taken to a nearby hospital after Bucaoto vomited blood, according to the high school's newspaper, The Spectator. Both students have returned to school. Police sources told the Daily News that the poisoned teens were random targets.
The 15-year-old teammate who laced the drinks was charged with reckless endangerment. He also was kicked off the team and suspended for two weeks.
A half dozen other students on the JV football team who were aware of the prank but didn't alert anyone were suspended from the team, according to the school newspaper.
