Former news anchor and potential future WWE Diva Alycia Lane apparently “wasn’t quite crazazy enough to assault a cop” — and will get off with just a day of community service for an alleged smackdown back in December. Lane was in court this morning, where the Manhattan DA took the felony charge of assault down to a minor obstruction and harassment charge — to which Lane plead not guilty. According to the DA, the scratches she made on the NYPD officer in question — when she also allegedly called the cop “a f***ing dyke” — didn’t rise to the legal definition of physical injury. “I’m so glad this is over,” said Lane. She didn’t respond when asked if her next gig might be in wrestling.
