Dominic Dill-Reese, 15 months, started acting funny after drinking what his mother, Taylor, thought was apple juice during their lunch at Applebee’s in Madison Heights, Michigan on Friday, April 8. It turned out the cup was filled with margarita mix!
“He was saying hi and bye to the walls and then eventually lay his head on the table,” Taylor tells Fox News. “He dozed off a little bit and woke up and got real happy.”
Before leaving the restaurant, Taylor took a sip of Dominic’s juice and discovered that it was, in fact, alcoholic. “The manager came and he smelled it and he was like, ‘I am so sorry ma’am, I just don’t know what to do,’” Taylor explains. “Nobody at the table ordered alcoholic drinks so, he definitely shouldn’t have received one.” she adds.
Taylor took Dominic to the hospital, where doctors learned that his blood-alcohol level was .10, over the legal limit for adult drivers!
Police are currently investigating the incident and Applebee’s has issued a statement calling the mix-up “unacceptable.” They have offered to work alongside authorities and will conduct their own investigation.
