One of the three cops, a woman, told the TV anchor to back away, saying, “You can take pictures, but you have to step back,” the sources said.
That’s when Lane went nuts, shouting, “I don’t care that you’re a cop – dyke bitch! Then she walloped the officer in the face, the sources said.
Our favorite cop beating anchorwoman is back in the news, and this time it's even weirder than the other 40 times. Lane, an news anchor in a large regional market, came to national prominence through two high-profile scandals in a single year.
Lane – whose lawyer claimed she didn’t know the three were cops – was busted and taken to the 10th Precinct station house, where she was charged with assault.
Crying so hard that her makeup ran down her face, Lane was later taken to central booking for her arraignment last night.
For Lane (if the offer is true), the choice might just be between working for the WWE and kissing serious news goodbye...
or accepting a job in a small Midwest or Southern market.
The usually impeccably primped Lane, whose red-rimmed eyes were a sharp contrast to her sleek, black jacket and pants, was released on her own recognizance. Lane’s Madison Avenue lawyer, David Smith, said his client “absolutely never hit or made any derogatory comments to anyone.” “She was accosted by several individuals wearing plainclothes who violently grabbed her camera to prevent her from taking pictures of the altercation they were involved in,” Smith said. ) keep it up.” For a while, Lane dated WCBS-TV new anchor Chris Wragge, but they called it quits in October.
He said Lane “was shocked to learn that these people were police officers after the fact.” Lane, who has been dating Booker, a DJ at Q102 in Philly, refused to disclose who was in the cab with her, at first saying, “No comment,” and then, when pressed, adding, “several friends.” As Page Six reported last May, the petite Lane hit the headlines big when she e-mailed bikini photos of herself to NFL Network anchorman Rich Eisen, only to have them discovered by his wife, Suzy Shuster. A KYW/Channel 3 rep last night said in a statement: “We have no official comment at this time, except to say that we are very concerned for Alycia.A seething Shuster, a sideline reporter for ABC’s college-football broadcasts, fired off a stinging letter to the anchorwoman that said, “Boy do you look amazing in a bikini .ñ.ñ.

Apparently Lane was traveling in a taxi with hercurrent boyfriend, Q12 DJ Chris Booker, when one of the otherpassengers got out and confronted three officers in an unmarked policecar. This comes lessthan a week after other sources claimed the pair was set to star in areality TV show. If these two can't make it, what hope do Alycia Lane and Chris Booker have? Lane was reportedly inthe company of her boyfriend, K-Rock ex-jock Chris Booker.I wish we had the chance to say goodbye to our listeners who are such a part of our lives, but I know that's not how it's done.
