Tostee, who also goes by the name of Eric Thomas, fell asleep at a woman’s house on December 31, 2019 before he was woken up by police, according to news.com.

An emergency call was made in the middle of the night from his Tinder date’s home in Logan on the outskirts of Brisbane. 

Police told news.com they had been called to reports of a "man being intoxicated and making a woman feel uncomfortable". 

Tostee told Nine News the woman had said she had done some research on him and it had got her "off edge'.

Police say no disturbance or offences were committed during the December 31 incident.

In 2016 Tostee was put on trial in the Brisbane Supreme Court for the murder of New Zealand woman Warriena Wright who he met on Tinder in 2014. Ms Wright died after falling from the 14th floor of Tostee's Gold Coast apartment. Tostee was found not guilty of murder or the lesser charge of manslaughter.
