About the 20-year-old Jersey Girl Locked Inside Boss Tweed’s Last Week

Posted on: July 24th, 2017 at 5:11 am by

Walk of shame. Bar rescue. These were the pithy opening shots of articles written about the incident in which a 20-year-old New Jersey girl passed out in the bathroom of Boss Tweed’s Saloon, and awoke early Friday morning locked behind shuttered gates.

Therese Hipolito, 20, of Flemington, reportedly fell asleep on the bathroom floor before 4am after a night of drinking. Hours later, witnesses said she could be heard shouting from behind the roll-down gate before cops released her at 9:20 a.m., police told the New York Post.

She had called the cops two hours prior, upon waking up. Officers then sawed through the gate lock to free her.

Hipolito, a current law student, subsequently claimed that her drink had been spiked while partying the night before. She plans on suing the bar.

“Whatever happened last night, I’m not that kind of person,” she told the paper. “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.’’

Meanwhile, the rebranded Boss Tweed’s Saloon – rebooted earlier this year – is now allegedly in a bit of trouble for underage drinking.
