Warning to all parents who regularly dine out with their young children at licenced restaurants.
Please make sure you sample your child's juice before allowing them to drink it, if purchased on the premises, as there have been a number of 'mishaps' lately where children have been served mixed cocktails 'accidentally'.
All restaurants have been ordered to store fruit juices in CLEARLY marked containers as there have been incidences of children five and under, falling around drunk, starting brawls and using foul language in restaurants after having been 'accidentally' served cocktails in their sippy cups.
In one instance, riot police had to be called to a Toronto Restaurant as the toddlers were throwing dishes around, biting and kicking the 'servers', urinating over the floors causing patrons and staff to slip, slide and injure themselves. Some needed stitches.
Parents were in a state of shock and most had to be sedated by parmedics called to the scene.
A number of toddlers were taken to hospital where they were found to have 3 times the legal limit of alcohol (adult limit) in their systems. They were kept in overnight for observation and will not be charged.
However, staff at all restaurants involved have been severely warned but cannot be charged as no individual has come forward to accept responsibility.
One theory is that the drinks were mixed up on purpose at the restaurants in question, by disgruntled workers who were working their notice.
This is being looked into by the police.
More as we get it.
