Boy Leaves Daycare, Goes to Hooters
Police say a child was able to sneak out of his day-care center without anyone noticing and take a perilous walk that ended at a Hooters restaurant.
The 5-year-old boy reportedly walked out of the Imagination Station day care in Denton, Texas.
Police said he walked a long way in 100-degree heat crossing at least two busy streets.
He went to a Pep Boys, where he swiped some gum, according to a store worker. The boy then hiked to a RaceTrac gas station where he stole a soda, according to investigators.
His walk then led to a Hooters restaurant where employees gave him a coloring book and soda pop to drink and called police.
The child was not hurt and he was released to his father.
Imagination Station would not comment on the situation.
According to the Department of Family and Protective Services, the day care has had several violations including one in April in which inspectors determined that staff was not properly supervising the children.
The state agency is now investigating this case.
