Journalist Colleen Campbell called work at PHL 17 to tell her boss why she was unable to come to work. [It is unknown whether she told her boss she was in jail.] Ms. Campbell was surprised to discover she was fired.
There was video. “Video, what video”? She protested.

[The police officer showed a remarkable amount of restraint. God Bless our police.]

Police say that she kicked him repeatedly and also kicked the doors and windows of a police car.
Police say that there are additional charges pending against Campbell, including simple assault, terroristic threats, hindering apprehension, and failure to disperse.
