A meteorologist at WSAZ in Charleston was charged with misdemeanor battery of a co-worker on Aug. 26, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.
Chelsea Ambriz, 26, of Huntington, was charged after an alleged altercation at a Charleston bar with news anchor Erica Bivens, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.
Bivens reportedly suffered a ruptured eardrum and skull fracture when Ambriz allegedly shoved her down, according to the complaint.
The co-workers tangled at a bar in Charleston after Bivens thought Ambriz was making overtures toward her husband, FTVLive reported, citing a police report. She confronted Ambriz, who became angry and allegedly shoved Bivens, the report said.
In a tweet, Bivens said she was waiting on clearance from doctors before returning to work and thanked viewers "for the kind words and support."
Ambriz will appear in court Sept. 21.
