John Bolaris Was Roofied

Um, it's a slow day and we couldn't pass this up.

This isn't a publicity stunt for The Hangover 2.  John Bolaris claims he was roofied by two Latvian women who had bought him shots at a Miami hotel last spring.

Bolaris was at the bar when he was approached by two twenty something girls (John, you dog). The encounter quickly found its way out to the pool (like it always does), then this happened: []

Fast forward a few minutes. "We were sitting by a pool bar, and they asked if I did shots," Bolaris said. "I said no.

"One of them started rubbing me, opened my mouth, and said, 'Do [a] shot.' "

It was days before Bolaris figured out that the women had slipped him a roofie, the infamous date-rape drug.


I love how Bolaris adds her accent into the story- do shot.

The next thing Bolaris remembers is waking up in a taxi with a wine-stained shirt. There was a painting of a woman's face next to him. Then he got drugged again:

He tracked down Marina and Anna, who said he had bid for the painting at the fundraiser. They met him at his hotel – ostensibly to return his sunglasses, which they had taken by accident – and promised to straighten the whole thing out, if only Bolaris would share a cab with them to the Caviar Bar, where one of the women said she left her purse.

Bolaris obliged. Then he was drugged again, according to the FBI.

"They got me twice," he said. "I couldn't put anything together. I had no idea what happened."


The two women ran up a $43,000 bill on his credit card and ruined his credit with American Express, which led him to sue the credit giant. His coming forward with this helped the FBI nab 17 members of an Eastern European fraud ring.


Fist pound to Barstool

  1. his friend didn’t go. he went to miami by himself. the friend bailed at the last minute

  2. so basically, Bolaris tried to three way 2 chicks from the Eastern european bloc, got date raped, and bought 43k worth of caviar. nice.

  3. That’s like the STORM OF THE CENTURY. Unbelievable. I hope he moved back to NYC.

  4. why havent u photoshopped bolaris’ head on the picture yet??? i heard he got beat up at the jersey shore and pissed on a few years back? any truth to that?

  5. Ok well no one deserves to be taken advantage.
    But since this is Bolaris I have to ask: who goes to Miami alone? Douchebags trolling for chicks.
    Also – he needs to stop thinking 20somethings (hot or not) want anything to do with him. he’s old now and was never good looking to begin with, if you take into account that he’s like 4’10”

  6. HE HAS to do it now, doesn’t he? Even if Kyle Scott wants remain editor, even if his internal reasonings conclude that his blog’s fading content in two of the last three posts were no fault of his, hasn’t Kyle Scott introduced a virus into his readership with his tepid postings of the content over the last 10 hours?
    Hasn’t he put himself in the position to either sell his blog or strip his editorship?
    First, poster dan r was all over the place during a shortened post on the site about what went wrong. At first, he termed questions about Scott’s editorship “a photoshop,” asserting that he took the blog within two posts of a Webby the year before. (Of course, Iron Balls McGinty was posting more than 25 comments a post during that stretch, too, tormenting readers on and off the blog, front and center when the servers turned on, too – but I digress.)
    Later, asked about their relationship, dar r asked: “i heard he got beat up at the jersey shore and pissed on a few years back? any truth to that?”
    A post later, Bitchadelphia, who also seemed surprised at the line of questioning, blurted out this unforgettable line: “Also – he needs to stop thinking 20somethings (hot or not) want anything to do with him. he’s old now and was never good looking to begin with, if you take into account that he’s like 4’10”.”

  7. this story smells – as a former hotel worker in A.C., it was very common for guys to bring hookers to their rooms and get robbed – they would NEVER have been able to “track down” the hoes…
    these babes would have been gone after the first rip-off – this is a BS story

  8. What is Nick from Germantown talking about? LOL
    I read about this in the Daily News. Crazy

  9. I agree with JMac. This story doesn’t add up. There is more to this story and now that John is telling this tale under oath, if he is lying now all of a sudden he is screwed.

  10. @kyle – Check out the line “I love him Bolaris adds her accent into the story”, is that a freudian slip or did you mean “I love how Bolaris…” I mean, I love Bolaris too, but…

  11. Who goes on vacation to Miami solo. No1 knows him in miami. At least in Avalon or philly he could pull some young tail just for being a local weatherman.

  12. I heard the story of him getting pissed on at the shore from him on the radio (think it was on ‘MMR when he first came back to philly). He said people were so angry with him he miss called the “storm of the century”. I believe he said he was at a bar in avalon in the bathroom and the dude at the urinal next to him just turned and started pissing him. Pretty sure the guy was bigger so he didn’t do anything about it.

  13. I’m not a Johnny B fan but kinda feel bad for him. Guy can’t catch a break

  14. Who the f*ck’s this Bolaris numnuts and what business does he have being in Miami?
    Serves him right too for getting involved with hoo-er’s with eastern Europeean accents.
