Applebee's makes changes after child gets alcohol

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. — Police say a 15-month-old toddler was accidentally given alcohol mixed with apple juice at a Michigan restaurant.

The toddler's parents called police at 4:30 p.m. Friday when they noticed the toddler acting funny at an Applebee's restaurant in Madison Heights, according to a statement by police.

The Applebee's restaurant chain says it will now pour juice for children from single-serve containers at the table starting this week. Applebee's also plans to retrain workers..

Madison Heights police say the drink mislabeled as apple juice was actually a leftover mixed drink combination.

Fifteen-month-old Dominic Dill-Reese's mother ordered her son a kid's meal and asked for apple juice as the beverage Friday afternoon. Dominic was checked out by doctors, and the family was told the child's blood alcohol level was .10 percent. That's over the legal limit for an adult driver.

Dominic is expected to be OK.
