A Santa Fe man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly rammed his truck into a car full of women after he learned his recently-purchased “cocaine” was actually soap, police said.

Robert Trujillo, 53, returned to a house where he bought what he thought was cocaine when he discovered he had just spend $125 on soap, according to Santa Fe Police. He demanded his money back, and, when no one responded, he left and waited outside in his pickup truck.

Later, a car with five women arrived at the house, police said. When the car left the house, Trujillo drove his truck in front of it, turned around and rammed his truck head on into the car.

Trujillo and all five women were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, police said. Trujillo faces five counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
