Weather girl charged over brawl with TV anchor
A WEATHER presenter who works at a West Virginia television station is accused of shoving a news anchor on Sunday and fracturing her skull.
WSAZ-TV weather forecaster Chelsea Ambriz, 26, of Huntington, was charged with misdemeanour battery after she allegedly shoved station anchor Erica Bivens, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.
Fox News reports that Bivens suffered a ruptured eardrum and skull fracture after she was allegedly shoved down by Ambriz.
The co-workers got into the brawl at a bar after Bivens thought Ambriz was hitting on her husband, FTVLive reported, citing a police report.
She confronted Ambriz, who became angry and allegedly shoved Bivens.
Ambriz is set to appear in court September 21. It's unclear if she has a lawyer that can be contacted for comment.
Bivens shared on Facebook that she was now at home recovering from her injuries and "waiting for doctors to clear me so I can get back to work".
The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported Ambriz could face "up to a year in jail and/or a fine of no more than $US500" if she's found guilty.
Fox News has reached out to WSAZ-TV for comment but it was not immediately answered.
