A New York television weather woman who sometimes filled in on Good Morning America has admitted that she lied months ago when she told police that she was nearly raped while jogging.
WABC/Channel 7 has suspended Heidi Jones and is investigating, the New York Post reported.
Her co-workers went from sympathetic to outraged, The Post reported.
"It was an outrageous lie," a WABC staff member told The Post.
The paper reported that police sources said Jones admitted to making the false report because she suffered from "personal and professional pressures" and wanted "sympathy" over a personal issue.
"She was deeply unhappy, personally and professionally," a newsroom source to The Post.
