We reported on these rumors when CJ published them, but now the batshit crazy U student and KSTP intern is charged by police for her newsroom rampage. Wondering how to react when you are fired from your job? This student can help you out.
When Jennifer Nicole Anato-Mensah, 21, was fired Oct. 13 from her internship at KSTP, she was not happy. She started screaming threats at one of the top producers and kicked out the glass of a conference room door to attack her, according to the criminal complaint report in the Pioneer Press.
Several newsroom employees heard Anato-Mensah shouting, yelling obscenities and threatening Prenevost, saying, "You don't know where I'm from. I'll mess you up, b -----."
Prenevost attempted to walk away from Anato-Mensah, but the intern followed her. A male employee stepped between her and Prenevost, who went into a nearby conference room. The male employee tried to get Anato-Mensah to calm down and pack up her things, but Anato-Mensah left her desk and again tried to get to the conference room, the complaint said.
She was charged with criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.
Yikes. Media jobs are probably not the best ones to go crazy at. We're a gossip industry and that sort of thing doesn't stay quiet.
