STUART SCOTT, the talented and entertaining anchor on ESPN's "SportsCenter," had a way with words. His famous catchphrases included: "Boo-Yah!" "As cool as the other side of the pillow. " "Just call him butter cuz he's on a roll. " Yesterday, Scott died at 49 after a lengthy battle with cancer. And fittingly, there were words. Words of love. Words of consolation. President Obama, actor Samuel L. Jackson, and former NBA star Michael Jordan were among those sharing their thoughts.

Alycia Lane sued KYW-TV yesterday, claiming that the station exploited her, tore her down, and defamed her on her way out the door. Seeking unspecified damages, the former anchor alleges in a complaint filed in Common Pleas Court that management "turned a blind eye" toward leaks of personal information after she repeatedly voiced concerns about "security breaches" in her private e-mail.

The FBI has launched a criminal investigation of CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte - searching his home and confiscating his personal computer - to determine whether he illegally accessed the Yahoo e-mail account of former colleague Alycia Lane, sources told The Inquirer yesterday.

Alycia Lane's civil attorney went to court yesterday, saying he is looking "for the facts and circumstances" surrounding her firing from KYW-TV (CBS3), her former television station. Paul R. Rosen would not say yesterday whether the move was a precursor to a lawsuit. "Upon completion of this investigation, Alycia will then determine what course of action is in her best interest," Rosen said. Rosen asked Common Pleas Court to issue a writ of summons. He wants to take depositions from CBS3 president Michael Colleran and news director Susan Schiller in connection with Lane's firing on New Year's Day, about two weeks after she was arrested in New York and accused of hitting a police officer.

Alycia Lane, fired yesterday from CBS3, is likely to fire back in court. The anchor, accused of assaulting a plainclothes policewoman in a middle-of-the-night encounter three weeks ago on a New York City street, received no severance from the station, where she had coanchored the 6 and 11 p.m. news since arriving from Miami in September 2003. Last week, after the station made it clear that her contract would be terminated, Lane hired Philadelphia attorney Paul Rosen to represent her in what's expected to be a breach-of-contract suit for what Rosen yesterday called the station's "unfair" and "unwarranted" move.

CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane was arrested early yesterday after allegedly punching a plainclothes female New York City police officer in the face around 2 a.m. in Manhattan. Lane, 35, was charged with assault. New York Police Sgt. Carlos Nieves said Lane's attack left the officer bloody and lacerated. Lane could not be reached for comment, but an attorney representing her said last night that she "never hit or said any derogatory comments to anyone. " "We are confident that after a full investigation of the facts she will be cleared of these charges," said David Smith, a New York lawyer.
