Mom's Complicated Relationship With Her Breasts: 1 Tried to Kill Her and 1 Keeps Her Baby Alive

Police Investigate Mom Over Facebook Post

Facebook Post Sends Police Knocking on Mom's Door

As yet another lesson on why you should be careful what you post on Facebook, police recently investigated a Massachusetts mom after she posted a video on the social networking site and jokingly said her kids were drinking "beer," WHDH-TV reports.

According to Taylor Grey, she frequently makes organic fruit smoothies for her children, and occasionally adds carbonated soda to them, which she calls "cocktails." "They feel like they're grown up and like it's a party and we let them choose their garnish or whatever — it's just a fun kind of thing," she said. Yet it wasn't so fun when after uploading a video of her son pretending to be a superhero with a "beer" in his hand, police came knocking at her door.

Apparently police had received an anonymous tip that Grey was serving her kids alcohol. Once there, Lt. Marc Berube of the Salem police department confirmed that there was no evidence of alcohol being served, that it was strawberry and ginger ale. And from now on, Grey said she will be careful to call her kids' drinks "mocktails" instead.
