A Philadelphia reporter, Colleen Campbell, 28, is not only out of job but perhaps a profession after a video of her berating police officers went viral. Campbell is shown below in cuffs after being removed from the Helium Comedy Club on Sunday night. She was asked to leave for disrupting comedian Craig Robinson by her loud whispering. It then went from bad to worse (Warning: the video below contains foul language)
The police were called after Campbell allegedly got into a fight with bar staff while being escorted out of the bar.
Campbell was shown screaming “you guys are f—ing dictators… you f—ing c—k suckers” and “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.” She also appears to try to spit in the face of a person nearby.
She demands proof of her crime and screams “Show me videotape. You can’t. That’s why everybody hates you guys! You can’t prove it!” Unfortunately for her they do have a videotape and the resulting anger was not directed at the police.
Campbell later apologized and said, “My actions on that video are not the result of a handful of drinks spaced out over a couple of hours. I believe I may have been unknowingly drugged at some point that night. I did not receive medical testing while in custody because, as I recall, I was advised by personnel at the police station that such testing would delay the process of my being released.”
The station did not wait. Campbell is now a former reporter.
