Alycia Lane Assaults Cop, Calls Her "Dyke Bitch"

by at . Comments

Yes, that Alycia Lane.

The Philadelphia news anchor who infamously sent racy bikini pics of herself to married sports anchor Rich Eisen is back in the news - after getting arrested for allegedly slugging a female cop and calling her a "dyke bitch."

According to the New York Post, Alycia Lane, an anchor for Philadelphia's KYW-TV, was in a cab on Ninth Avenue in New York yesterday when she got stuck behind an unmarked police car.

That's when $h!t went down.

Alycia Lane and her boyfriend, radio host Chris Booker, were stuck behind a slow-moving, unmarked police car in Chelsea.

When the unmarked car stopped at a red light at Ninth Avenue and 17th, Chris Booker, 36, went over to the unmarked vehicle to find out what was causing the delay.

When apparently told the occupants were officers looking for a perp, he yelled, "I don't care if you're a cop! Drive faster!" the sources said.

The three officers inside, two men and a woman, got out to question Booker, now a deejay with Q102 in Philadelphia, the sources said.

The petite, twice-divorced Lane, 35, got out of the cab and began snapping photos, getting in the face of the male officer doing most of the grilling.

The female cop then told the feisty anchor, "You can take pictures, but you have to step back," the sources said.

Going ballistic, Alycia Lane shouted that she was a reporter and declaring, "I don't care that you're a cop - you dyke bitch!" the sources said.

Then Alycia Lane allegedly walloped the officer in the face

Lane was taken to the 10th Precinct station and charged with assaulting an officer. The cop was treated at a hospital and released.

Later, her red-rimmed eyes a sharp contrast to her sleek, black jacket and pants, Lane was released without bail and shared a hug with Booker.

Lane's lawyer, David Smith, said she "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."

A Long Island, N.Y., native, Alycia Lane is a former reporter and anchor for the cable station News 12 in The Bronx, and covered the 1999 shooting of Amadou Diallo, the unarmed immigrant killed by 40 police bullets.

As the New York Post reported last May, Alycia Lane apparently e-mailed bikini photos of herself to NFL Network and ESPN anchorman Rich Eisen.

The pics were discovered by his wife, Suzy Shuster.

A seething Shuster fired off a letter to Lane, saying, "Boy do you look amazing in a bikini ... congrats! Whatever you're doing (Pilates? yoga?) keep it up."

Snap. To make matters worse, Suzy Shuster forwarded Lane Rich Eisen's personal email address, "since you surely are trying so hard to get attention."
