We may have just usurped New York's "toughest" reputation -thanks to that Philly reporter with the gorgeous name...
"...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.
The Daily News exclusively reported Alycia Lane's arrest yesterday on PhillyGossip.com. She was nabbed at 2:04 a.m. at 17th Street and 9th Avenue in lower Manhattan, said New York City police spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves.
Lane, 35, her current honey, Q102 morning host Chris Booker, and another couple were in a cab behind a slow-moving unmarked cop car, the New York Post reported. One of the males jumped out and headed to the police vehicle, screaming, "I don't care if you're a cop, drive faster!" the newspaper said.
The officers got out and identified themselves to Lane and company, and Lane began to take photos, according to the paper. The female cop asked her to step back and that's when Lane lost it, according to the Post.
A station source said Lane's iPhone was confiscated by cops as evidence.
Lane was charged with one count of assault with intent to cause physical injury to an officer, Nieves said.
The 10th Precinct officer suffered laceration wounds to her face, Nieves said..." (source)
First off (and most important), how cool is it that the inkies are now using BLOGS as their sources. You gotta love it -and they have to hate it. Congrats to Daniel McQuade of PWD on that.
Truthfully, I'm not sure why everyone is making such a big deal over this. Naomi Campbell has freaked, Russell Crowe and Rosie O'Donnell have lost it on people. Alycia Lane may not be proper movie star, but she's well known here and she's cute -so I'm sure her ego is out of control. No surprise to me that she's a dreadful diva.
The moral of the story is: Don't mess with us Philly girls. We won't stand for it or back down no matter how small our physical stature. And don't drive slow when we're in a hurry -that *is* grounds for assault here. ;)
