Does this Look Like the Face of a 21 Year Old Dover City Councilor Who May or May Not Have Been Denied Entry into Whiskey Priest After The Pats Game Because He Was Shitfaced And Then Got Mugged?
DOVER — City Councilor Michael Weeden is resting at his home after he was mugged in Boston early Monday morning. Weeden woke up in Massachusetts General Hospital after losing consciousness following the attack, which occurred about three blocks from South Station. Weeden and a friend were in Boston after spending Sunday afternoon and evening at the New England Patriots game in Foxboro. There are differing reports as to what happened once they arrived in Boston. According to a police report obtained by Foster’s Daily Democrat, Weeden’s friend claims Weeden was denied entry into a Boston nightclub because he was too intoxicated. The friend told his mother a bouncer at the nightclub had put Weeden into a cab. Weeden, who is also a state representative and is seeking re-election to his council seat, claims the story from his friend is not accurate. “We’re both 21 and we’d had a few beers,” Weeden acknowledged. But the companions were not driving. They had taken a C&J bus to Boston and had taken a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority train to Foxboro. They took the MBTA back to Boston and had planned on taking the C&J bus back to Dover, Weeden said. He said his friend wanted to go out to a bar. Weeden wanted to head home. Weeden gave his debit card to his friend, who had no money left after the football game. His friend wanted to go to a bar called Whiskey Priest. Weeden told Foster’s he was worried about missing the bus, so he left his friend and started walking toward South Station. It was on that walk that Weeden claims he was assaulted and mugged by three assailants. The next thing he knew, it was Monday morning and he was in the hospital.
A police report gathered from an interview with Weeden’s mother differs significantly from what Weeden told Foster’s. That story came second-hand from a conversation Weeden’s mother had with Weeden’s friend’s mother. The friend had called his mother while he was at the bar at approximately 1:30 a.m. Monday to tell her that Weeden was denied entry to the bar because he was intoxicated and that the bouncer had put Weeden in a taxi. The friend told his mother he would try to get a hotel room across from the bar. His mother did not know the name of the hotel or the bar and did not know where they were in Boston.
Unaware of the incident, Foster’s Daily Democrat was informed about it Wednesday when Weeden sent a reporter an email to quash rumors there had been police activity at his home in connection with not showing up after the Patriots game. Weeden’s email led Foster’s Daily Democrat to make a Right-to-Know request for a police report relating to the incident.
Wait a minute. The only way this newspaper found out about this incident was when Weeden sent an email to quash the rumors about the incident which nobody knew anything about to begin with? Who is this guy? Michael Scott? “No, Pam. The press is just gonna find out by themselves. Alert the media, and then you control the story. Wait for them to find out, and the story controls you. That’s what happened to O.J.”
Well played City Councilor well played.
PS – I think it’s pretty obvious what happened here. Weeden got denied entrance into Whiskey Priest because he was shitfaced. He probably tried to play the “Do You Know Who I Am” card. After he got denied he walked to South Station to catch a bus home. He either fell down and passed out or got mugged. Maybe both? Ended up in the hospital. End of story. Either way what kind of friend is his buddy? Like who still goes into a bar alone when your friend gets denied?
