VIDEO: TV Reporter Fired After Tirade Against Philly Officer in Viral Video

Philly Mag reported Tuesday that a Philadelphia reporter was fired after she was arrested outside of Helium Comedy Club Sunday night for assaulting a police officer. The incident was caught in a now-viral video posted on social media by New York-based comedian Wil Sylvince, reports Fox News.

Colleen Campbell, 28, was asked to leave the venue after multiple warnings for disrupting a show featuring comedian Craig Robinson with her loud whispering. She then allegedly got into a fight with bar staff while on the way out.

Campbell was then filmed telling police, “You guys are f—ing dictators… you f—ing c—k suckers,” outside of the venue. She then added, “I did not do s—t, I stood there and laughed like the rest of the audience like I should. I did not disrupt anybody.”

The officer, who remained calm, told Campbell and her male guest to walk away. This only enraged Campbell. She was then caught calling the officer a “f—ing piece of s—t” and attempting to spit on the face of a man standing nearby.

“What’s that called? What’s that called? Assault? Show me videotape,” she said after being handcuffed. “You can’t. That’s why everybody hates you guys! You can’t prove it!”

Campbell later told the magazine she was allegedly drugged.
