Dublin reality star Hughie Maughan has said he thinks he was “spiked bad” on a night out last night.
The former youth worker told fans he could not remember where he was after only five drinks.
The North Dublin man fears that his life could have been in danger and warned fans about his ordeal.
Hughie admitted that he has been left greatly embarrassed by the whole experience as his friends had to take care of him and get him back to his hotel room safe.
He woke up alone on a bench and had to ask a policeman to help him find his pal, Dublin Live reports.
The poor man also injured his ankle during the night, meaning he can no longer walk on it.
Hughie wrote on Instagram: “I honestly think I was spiked bad last night.
“I can barely remember where I was, had about five drinks and I didn’t know where I was at times.
“It’s so scary.
“Never felt so embarrassed in my life, woke up in my friend’s bed who brought me back to the hotel and it was only 10pm.
“Woke up asleep on a bench in a street alone, had to get a policeman to take me to my friend somewhere.
“Literally could have been raped, robbed, murdered, anything…
“To top it off – I fell over and can’t walk on my ankle now.”
The star’s warning comes after reports of high levels of spiking in Dublin city since the clubs reopened last Friday.
UCDSU have warned students to be vigilant at following reports of drink spiking and spiking via injection in bars and nightclubs.
Welfare Officer, Molly Greenough said: “It’s incredibly disheartening to see the rise in reported cases of spiking across Ireland and the UK.
“It is vital to emphasise that the onus never lies on the victim to not be spiked, but rather on the perpetrator to not commit such a heinous crime.
“It’s important that students are equipped with the knowledge to better help them protect themselves and look out for their friends.
“While these can be tough conversations to have, it’s important for those in a position of privilege to safely call out peers on unacceptable behaviours when you see it happening–we can all play a part in developing a culture of consent, compassion, and community.”
