A TV reporter who was caught on video in a nasty incident over the weekend outside a comedy club in Philadelphia has been fired by her TV station, PHL 17.
Colleen Campbell, a 28-year-old Temple graduate who began working for PHL in 2016, can be seen on the video using coarse language in a tirade aimed at security personnel outside the Helium Comedy Club. She also apparently tries to spit on a bystander. The video, taped Sunday night, has gone viral on the Internet.
Philadelphia magazine reports that Campbell, who can be seen being arrested on the video, was charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. She was released Monday and is due back in court June 13.
The New York Post reports that Campbell was fired by PHL.
Campbell was apologetic in a later interview with Philadelphia magazine. She said she does not normally act that way, and she only had one or two drinks at the club. She said she suspects she was drugged.
