Mom Created Drink that Sent Son’s Classmate to Hospital

The mother of a 10-year-old reportedly sent her son to school with a drink she concocted and told him to give it to a child who bullied him to teach him a lesson.

At the beginning of March, a 45-year-old woman who works as a nurse was told by her 10-year-old son, who attends Legacy Traditional School – Alamo Ranch, that on March 5, he had a bottle of sports drink stolen by a fellow schoolmate. He reportedly told her he was being bullied by the boy who took it.

The child’s mother allegedly decided to enact a plan to halt the bullying her son was experiencing. She reportedly made a mixture of Gatorade and non-toxic ingredients including vinegar, salt, and lemon juice, and put it in a Gatorade sports drink bottle.

On March 6, the woman reportedly gave the bottle to her son and instructed him to give it to the boy who stole his drink the day before. He went to school, and when he encountered the child, he reportedly handed over the homemade concoction.

After the boy drank the contents of the Gatorade bottle, he reportedly developed a headache and became nauseous. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment, and the authorities were notified.

Deputies from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office went to the school and they began investigating the situation. The boy told the deputies his mother made the drink that the child drank before he got sick.

When the authorities talked to the boy’s mother, she reportedly said there was nothing toxic in the drink and cited her nursing experience.

The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Bexar County Jail. She is facing preliminary charges of injury to a child causing bodily injury. According to records, she was released the following day after posting a $1,000 bond.
