    Mom Sues After 5-Year-Old Allegedly Served Long Island Iced Tea

    POSTED: 10:48 pm EST January 8, 2006
    UPDATED: 12:09 pm EST January 9, 2006

    A mother in New York is suing an Applebee's restaurant after her 5-year-old son was allegedly served a Long Island Iced Tea instead of apple juice.

    Cynthia Pereles said she took her son Seth to dinner at the franchised restaurant in Battery Park City and ordered him an apple juice.

    Pereles said she did not realize her son was drinking a concoction of white rum, gin, vodka, triple sec, Coke and sweet-and-sour mix until it was too late. The boy's eyes became glazed and he began to laugh uncontrollably, according to a report.

    Pereles said the restaurant admitted the mistake but she is still suing for $75,000.

    "When you're looking at your 5-year-old and you're asking him, quiet down Seth, sit still and you see that mentally and physically he cannot comply with what you're asking him to do because he is under the influence," Pereles said.

    The boy was taken to the hospital and doctors found alcohol in the child's blood.

    Pereles said the restaurant admitted the mistake but she is still suing for $75,000.

    A manager at the restaurant declined comment.

    How is it worth 75 grand? there was no harm done and it was a genuine mistake. Jesus, you could get seriously injured here and not get half that amount.

    According to the mother, the manager of the restaurant admitted that the waiter was responsible for what happened. Her $75,000 figure is based on her son's now routine psychological counseling for PTSD. For $75,000 it would seem strange for Applebee's not to settle if she has an even mildly persuasive case, don't you think? Especially since it involves a child. I'm a bit skeptical as well.

    Even better... wait 20 years and when the kid is a full blown alcoholic homeless person he can come back and sue saying it all started with that first L I I T.

    The only thing you could sue him for is his bad choice in giving you such a piss poor beer!

    My dad used to let us have sips of his Blatz. My taste in beer has significantly improved since then.
