Alycia Lane, accused of assaulting an NYPD officer and subsequently fired from her anchor job at CBS3 in Philadelphia, is now free of the felony charges but still faces counts of harassment and obstruction of governmental administration. The judge in the case said those charges will be dropped in six months if she stays out of trouble.
Alycia, who was in court yesterday, did not plead guilty and her record will not carry a conviction.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports her attorney says Alycia wants to work again in Philadelphia – but for another station. With 3 and 1/2 years still left on her contract, her attorney is working on a civil case against CBS.
CBS claims that Alycia became the story, appearing on Dr. Phil to talk about her failed marriages and that other misjudgements during her stay at CBS3 prompted the decision to terminate her.
