Two men face felony child-abuse charges in Volusia County after deputies say they took shots of candy flavored vodka with a 13-year-old boy on Saturday.

An adult caretaker called deputies to a home on Harrow Avenue in Deltona after returning from the store to find the teen “not acting right,” an incident report states.

The boy was slurring his words, the report says, and was “in and out of consciousness” before he was taken to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial by paramedics.

Deputies found Geoffery McKenzie, 21, sitting on a couch inside the home, the report states, and he explained the teen had “asked if [McKenzie] wanted to ‘drink.'”

McKenzie told sheriff’s deputies that he agreed to drink with the teen, went to a local liquor store and purchased a bottle of Pinnacle “Gummy” flavored vodka.

After returning to the home, he and the teen “went to the back patio of the residence and started to take ‘shots’ of vodka,” the incident report states.

Co-defendant T.J. Schnack, 19, also admitted drinking with the teen, the report says. They drank about two hours, he told deputies, until the bottle was empty.

Schnack and McKenzie were arrested on charges of child abuse without great harm. It’s not clear in the report if or how they knew the boy or his caretaker.
