Police: 10-year-old boy mistakenly served alcohol

Police say a boy celebrating his 10th birthday was accidentally served an alcoholic drink at an Indianapolis restaurant.

According to the police report, the boy ordered a smoothie at an Olive Garden in Indianapolis on Thursday night but was mistakenly given a rum drink. Police say he drank about half of the 4-ounce drink before a supervisor notified the parents about the mistake.

The parents said they took their son to a hospital as a precaution. The boy was alert but a little shaken up.

An Olive Garden spokeswoman says the waitress has been fired. Indiana Child Protective Services is investigating to determine whether any charges should be filed.
