KYW anchor arrested

Alycia Lane, a reporter for CBS-owned KYW-TV in Philadelphia was arrested in New York City Saturday night for striking a police officer in the city’s meatpacking district. If you recall, Lane appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil a few years back to discuss her failed marriages (Dr. Phil also airs on KYW and sister station WPSG in Philadelphia.)

Dr. Phil is syndicated by CBS Television Distribution (CTD). KYW, WPSG and CTD are all owned by CBS Corp.

KYW has placed Lane on “indefinite leave” and is on vacation until further notice.

UPDATE: Lane has also been pulled from all of the station’s promos and has been cut out of the KYW’s holiday special, fueling speculation that she might not return from “vacation”.

So, how’s that working for ya? Not too well, I see…
