CBS 3 anchor Larry Mendte is the target of a federal investigation. Mendte's attorney, Michael Schwartz, confirms the FBI searched Mendte's home in a case involving former CBS 3 anchor Alycia Lane.
According to a published report, Mendte's computer was seized by the FBI as part of a probe into whether Mendte accessed the private e-mail of Ms. Lane. Federal law generally prohibits accessing and reading someone's private e-mail without their permission.
CBS 3 has issued the following statement: "Late last week, CBS 3 became aware of an investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office regarding anchor Larry Mendte. CBS 3 is cooperating fully with that office in this matter. Mr. Mendte will not be on CBS 3's broadcasts pending further investigation." (CBS3)
I almost feel badly for Mendte, because any time a cop-punching piece of garbage like Alycia Lane gets her rights violated, it's a good day.
