Woman Climbs Inside NY1 News Van, Punches Reporter Vivian Lee

NY1 reporter Vivian Lee was allegedly attacked by a woman who climbed inside her news van while she was on location this morning. DNAInfo has details on the incident, which took place in Brooklyn:

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. The van’s driver then grabbed the woman, hauled her out of the van and held her to the ground until cops arrived and took her away.

Lee was fine, and an ambulance was not called. The woman was handcuffed and taken away by police. [h/t FishbowlNY]
