News anchor Alycia Lane once again finds herself instead of reporting the news … being the news. First the email bikini pics to NFL Networks, Rich Risen, and now this.
NEW YORK (AP) — A television news anchor who made headlines for sending photos of herself in a bikini to a married man at the NFL Network was arrested Sunday after she punched a police officer in the face, authorities said.
Emmy Award winner Alycia Lane hit the female officer in Manhattan about 2 a.m. Sunday, said police, who provided no information about what led to the incident. The officer was treated at a hospital for a cut and was released.
Lane, 35, was arraigned on a felony charge of assaulting a police officer and pleaded not guilty, said her lawyer, David Smith.
PHILLY ANCHOR Alycia Lane is scheduled to appear on TV tomorrow night in “Celebrate the Season,” an annual special highlighting holiday cheer in the Delaware Valley. Not so fast.
The suits at CBS 3 and the CW Philly may have to reconsider broadcasting the special since Lane was arrested early yesterday on charges of punching a New York City cop in the face.
According to the police complaint, the Emmy-winning anchor yelled at the female police officer, “I don’t give a f— who you are, I’m a f—ing TV reporter, you f—ing dyke,” according to Philadelphiawilldo.com, a Philadelphia Weekly blog.
