Whistler woman says her drink was spiked on New Year’s Eve

A local woman believes she was drugged while ringing in the New Year at a Creekside bar.

On Jan. 2, Whistler RCMP received a report from the female stating that her drink may have been spiked while she left it unattended. She told police her intoxication level was “inconsistent with the amount of liquor that she consumed,” according to a release.

The woman was eventually ushered home by friends who were able to care for her.

Mounties are reminding members of the public to “never leave their drinks unattended, do not take a drink that you did not see poured or opened in front of you and to stay with friends and watch out for each other.”
