Mom Detained After Making Drink For Son To Give To School Bully That Hospitalized Him

A Texas mother has been arrested after a drink she made for her son’s bully sent him to the hospital, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Jennifer Lynn Rossi, 45, allegedly mixed lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and Gatorade in a sports bottle on Tuesday and instructed her son to give it to a classmate who had stolen his drink the day before at Legacy Traditional School- Alamo Ranch, about 20 miles northwest of downtown San Antonio, Texas, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by ABC News’ San Antonio affiliate KSAT.

“Upon arriving at the school, deputies discovered that the sick child had been given a drink by a classmate during PE class,” the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on the incident.

According to sheriff officials, the toddler became ill with nausea and headaches shortly after drinking the drink and was rushed to the hospital.

“Although the contents of the drink were non-toxic, the incident resulted in a child being hospitalized,” according to a statement from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. “Hospital staff informed the investigator that the child victim required additional medical monitoring and would eventually be discharged from the hospital.”

During the inquiry, it was discovered that the mother of the kid who gave the drink “intentionally mixed the contents of the drink to allegedly prevent her son’s drink from being stolen at school by other students,” officials stated.

Rossi was arrested and taken into jail, where she was charged with child injury resulting in bodily injury.

The inquiry into the incident is still ongoing.
