The Post files two stories about a 20-year-old New Jersey resident who reportedly passed out in the women's restroom at Boss Tweed's, the bar/saloon on Essex near Delancey.
Article Article No. 1:
Therese Hipolito, 20, of Flemington, could be heard shouting from behind the roll-down gate at Boss Tweed’s ... before cops set her free at around 9:20 a.m. [yesterday], police and witnesses said.
The reveler had been tossing back drinks with a gal pal when she nodded off on the floor of the bar’s rest room some time before workers closed up at 4 a.m., sources said.
She woke up a few hours later, freaked out and called 911 at 7:55 a.m., according to cops.
Bartenders had failed to check the bathroom before closing up, cops said.
The bar may now be in hot water over the underage drinker, a police source said.
Then in article No. 2, she told the Post that she believes her drink was spiked.
“Whatever happened last night, I’m not that kind of person.
“I would never be in the city just drinking. I was at a friend’s birthday party. I had one shot and one glass of champagne. And the last thing I remember, I go get a slice of pizza with my friend and we sit back down in a booth [at the bar] and that was my last clear memory."
And about being locked in:
“How do you not notice someone sleeping on the floor of your bathroom? There are only two stalls," she said, adding, "I’m going to sue them."
Speaking of her night behind the bar’s bars, she said “it’s really not like me – it’s so inappropriate and trashy."
Boss Tweed's closed earlier this year ... and reemerged as a more upscale lounge that advertises Super Model Karaoke on Wednesday evenings.
