CNN’s Carol Costello Mugged In Atlanta

CNN anchor Carol Costello was the victim of a mugging in Atlanta. Costello wrote about the incident on her Facebook page.

I was robbed.
And I am angry.
I was walking down a beautiful, leafy Atlanta street, talking on my IPhone.
Guess what happened next?
Three teenagers ran up behind me. One of them grabbed my IPhone. Stupidly I struggled to hold on-to it. But, he was a big guy. And he pulled out a chunk my hair.
I let go.
As he ran down the street, laughing, I hurled a few expletives his way.
I felt no fear at the time, I was just angry. Now I’m angry, shaken and sad. What a lousy life those kids have ahead of them.

Apple products are a particularly ripe target for thieves, because of their high resale value. TV anchors are no different than anyone else when it comes to being victims of crime. Regular readers may recall that MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski was mugged in Washington back in 2008.
