I do not see how you would be responsible for his medical charges or ambulance ride unless you signed an agreement to be responsible.

He could sue you. Anybody can sue anybody for anything. Winning is a different question. He volunteered over your warning. He loses.

If you told him not to eat the pepper then you are not criminally or civilly liable for anything. You should not talk to anyone about it, especially the police just to protect your rights.
