Gothamist's favorite drunk columnist, the New York Post's Steve Dunleavy, was pickpocketed last night. According to Newsday, he admitted being "very drunk... .comatose." Ah, just the way we like that bombastic Aussie. Dunleavy claims he "kicked the guy in the ass" but it was the police who later arrested the men.
A great Frank DiGiacomo piece about tabloid journalism and Steve Dunleavy. Gothamist now knows that when we're done blogging in the middle of the night, we should go to Langan's on West 47th to find Dunleavy and have a pint with him.
