The reporter, Colleen Campbell, is no longer employed at the news station she once worked at.
A belligerent woman who identified herself as an on-air reporter was caught on camera cursing out a police officer and spitting in another man’s face after she was removed from a comedy club in Philadelphia for being too loud, according to Philadelphia Magazine.

The video, shot by comedian Wil Sylvince, shows a remarkably calm police officer try to get the woman later identified as PHL 17 on-air talent Colleen Campbell to just go home. Instead, Campbell goes off on the officer for about two minutes until she appears to spit in another man’s face. She also took her shoe off and raised it above her head in a threatening manner, the video shows. “Smell my shoe [redacted]!” she says to the man.
That’s when the handcuffs came out.
“Arrested me, go ahead. I don’t [redacted] care,” she said with one shoe on and her hands cuffed behind her back. “Society hates you. … You’re arresting a girl for no [redacted] reason.”
A bystander who appears to be Campbell’s friend tries to calm her — without success. While in handcuffs, Campbell continues to berate the officer.
“About last night: this very obnoxious lady, who wasn’t drunk (nor high I think) was disturbing the show with her ‘loud whispering.’ After 3 warnings and other customers were complaining she was asked to leave,” Sylvince wrote on Facebook. “When she got kicked out she assaulted (kicking, punching, and eye poking) 3 of the employees in bar area right outside the showroom and then outside she mock spit in the mangers [sic] face when a cop came. She verbally abused this poor cop who was trying to keep the peace at first.”
