Alycia Lane, the feisty Philadelphia anchor who was arrested last month for fighting with a New York City cop, has been fired.

From CBS 3 (KYW-TV):

CBS 3 (KYW-TV) announced today that Alycia Lane has been released from her contract effective immediately.

CBS 3 President and General Manager Michael Colleran stated, "After assessing the overall impact of a series of incidents resulting from judgments she has made, we have concluded that it would be impossible for Alycia to continue to report the news as she, herself, has become the focus of so many news stories. We wish to make clear that we are not prejudging the outcome of the criminal case against Alycia that is pending in New York. We understand that Alycia expects to be fully vindicated in that proceeding. We hope that is the case and we wish her the best in all her future endeavors."

This is just the latest in the long saga involving Alycia Lane.

Previously, Lane attracted controversy over bikini photos she sent to NFL Network anchorman Rich Eisen. Playboy has also reportedly been considering an offer for Lane to pose naked in their magazine.
