CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A police report says a West Virginia TV anchor who was injured in a fight with a station meteorologist told authorities the fight was over her husband.
The Huntington Herald-Dispatch reported Tuesday the Charleston police report says WSAZ-TV on-air forecaster Chelsea Ambriz and station anchor Erica Bivens were at a bar last week when the fight started.
The report says Bivens told police Ambriz was flirting with her husband, and a confrontation between the two women ended in a fight.
Ambriz is accused of shoving Bivens, causing the anchor to suffer a fractured skull and ruptured ear drum. The 26-year-old is charged with misdemeanor battery.
It’s unclear if Ambriz has a lawyer to contact for comment. The station declined to comment due to an ongoing investigation into the fight.
