Cleared of Assault Charges, Former WPIX Reporter Vince DeMentri Says ‘I Need a Job’

Former WPIX reporter Vince DeMentri was acquitted Tuesday of all charges stemming from a confrontation with the chauffeur of a Bahamian ambassador.

The chauffeur accused DeMentri of slapping him and calling him the n-word after the two got into an argument over a parking spot near the United Nations headquarters last May.

“Nobody believed me,” DeMentri said on Tuesday afternoon after a Manhattan judge quickly ended the case, which was postponed last week after the chauffeur was accused of lying on the stand.

“I’m not the villain. I’m the victim. And you know what? I need a job.”
