Working for NY1 Is Extremely Hazardous

A woman draped in a sheet climbed into an NY1 news van and allegedly attacked Vivian Lee as the veteran reporter covered a story in Cobble Hill Friday morning. The woman, who wore the white sheet over a T-shirt, sweatpants and green flip-flops, went inside the truck about 7 a.m. and began using Lee’s makeup and snacking on food, Lee and a witness said. When Lee told her to leave, the woman allegedly punched the reporter in the neck.

— This happens to Roger Clark like every day though. (Relatedly, the story she was covering, of the church lightning strike killing a fellow at Kane and Clinton, is TERRIBLE and upsetting.)
