Joseph Fuller arrived at Edisto Primary School on May 19 to pick up his grandson early from school.

He reportedly saw a group of young students and thought he saw his grandson in the group. He approached the young boy and asked if he was ready to go, to which the boy said “yes,” and when a teacher asked if this man was his grandfather, the student replied, “yes.”

Fuller then checked the boy out of school and gave him a Happy Meal as he loaded the child up in his car with his wife. However, when the couple returned home, they realized that this was not their grandson.

“He had a tooth missing in the front, and I know my grandson did not have a tooth missing in the front,” Fuller said. “Immediately, I brought him back to school, and I am very sorry.”
