Alycia Lane's Charges Dropped (Sort Of)

Monday, February 25, 2008


Good news for fans of crazy this afternoon as former news anchor and Richard Eisen friend Alycia Lane took a deal in her New York court case. The anchor was charged with striking a female police officer and calling her a dirty name (dyke). The unfortunate thing is that we'll apparently never know if she really did those things or not....
Former CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane moved a step toward vindication in a five-minute hearing this morning in criminal court in Manhattan.

A judge signed off on an agreement stemming from a Dec. 16 incident in New York that will result in all charges being dropped in six months.

The deal is known as an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. Under an ACD, if Lane stays out of trouble for six months, her record will be wiped clean. She will carry neither a guilty plea nor a conviction.
Well then. So I guess we can expect a Wrongful Termination suit thrown at Philly's CBS Channel 3 then next. Also, there were rumors of her being invited to the WWE, but it looks like that's not going to happen. Darn.

If she would had said cunt instead of dyke, the charges would have stuck.

A wrongful termination suit has already been filed, long before her record had the possibility of being wiped clean. CBS is trying to get it moved out of PA, to NY, where they are hq'd.

I know I've said this before, but she reminds me a lot of the late Jessica Savitch. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a similar ending.
