Randi Goldklank, 40, the general manager of WHDH-TV (NBC), has resigned her position in Boston after pleading disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The arrest at Logan International Airport was the obvious result of drinking and the plea means that Goldklank will not face assault and battery charges.
Goldklank had arrived on an inbound Delta flight from Philadelphia. She would later tell an EMT that she had had “about three dozen drinks.” She reportedly tried to use her media position to badger the police and staff, who were struggling to hold her upright. She reportedly said: “I’m a big shot in Boston and I’ll have your (expletive) jobs. …you just watch and see what (expletive) happens when I get out of here,” according to the police report. I’ll have a news crew down here in minutes, and you will lose your (expletive) jobs you (expletives).”
The most bizarre aspect was her striking a man next to her. She claimed to be defending herself when he touched her inappropriately.
When she was booked, she tried another novel approach, reportedly telling the booking sergeant:
“You think I’m cute, and I think you’re cute. Just drive me home.”
Well, cuteness can have its limits.
