Rumors are swirling at CBS3 of a major announcement today regarding the fate of embattled anchor Alycia Lane.

Lane’s been off since Dec. 17, the day after the Daily News reported on PhillyGossip.com that she had been arrested in New York around 2 a.m. after allegedly striking a female NYPD officer and calling her a “fucking dyke” during a road rage dispute between the passengers of her cab and another car that contained three plainclothes police officers.

Lane’s lawyer David Smith has said his client maintains she never hit the policewoman, not used such language. 

CBS3 announced Dec. 17 that the anchor was on a three-week vacation, two of which were previously scheduled, but the station has said there was “nothing new to report,” about whether the anchor would be on-air Monday. A station spokeswoman, asked this morning whether we should expect an announcement today, said there was “nothing to announce at this time."

Sources say Lane, who has not publicly spoken about the incident, has also had preliminary conversations in recent days with at least one high-powered Center City law firm to discuss the possibility of filing a wrongful termination suit on her behalf in the event she is fired from the station.

Most TV reporters and anchors have what's known as a morals clause in their contracts that are typically phrased in legalese, but which loosely translate into “Don’t get arrested or do anything else to embarrass the station.”
