HOBOKEN – According to a police report, a woman came into Hoboken police headquarters in the wee hours of July 5 to say that her husband was a police officer and was helping a woman at a nearby bar who was sick, and that an ambulance and police radio car should be dispatched.
A Hoboken police officer responded to the scene and tended to a woman, who kept throwing up in the bathroom, according to the report. Also according to the report, the first police officer who had been helping the woman was actually an officer in Clark, NJ. That officer expressed his displeasure with the bar’s security staff. The security staff, in turn, had asked him to leave the bar and not come back.
The Hoboken police officer responding to the situation assessed that the woman needed medical attention. However, the manager of the bar, who had said earlier that the woman had been “doing shots,” did not want an ambulance called, according to the police report. According to the report, he “insisted that he would take her to a room he had at the W Hotel in Hoboken and take care of her, as she was also a television air personality [in] NY and that he didn't want any kind of police reports indicating what had transpired. While I understood his concern for [her] career, my immediate concern was for her well-being.”
The Hoboken officer called for an ambulance. The woman was taken to Hoboken University Medical Center.
