PHOTOS: Erin Logan of WNDU in South Bend arrested and fired after altercation, no charges were made
          

WNDU-TV in South Bend, IN has fired their news anchor Erin Logan after a drunken altercation involving Christopher (Chris) Zorich a former Notre Dame, Chicago Bear and Washington Redskin football star.  Zorich is currently the manager of student welfare and development for Notre Dame.

Apparently the two have a past together.  Check out this 2009 video of Chris Zorich from WNDU’s archive where Zorich discusses the College Football Hall of Fame moving to Atlanta from the land of the Golden Domers.  Logan is the reporter that narrates the news piece.

According to police reports Zorich, the Fighting Irish alum who was in the fight, was the one that contacted the cops.  When the officers arrived and discussed the situation with both Logan and Zorich the police agreed to give Logan a ride back to her house.  While in the backseat she got real irritated and started calling for a higher up that she knew because she felt she wasn’t being handled properly.  Touchdown Jesus help us!

Here are a couple of photos of the former news anchor:

Then according to a report filed by Jennifer Wilson, an officer who was at the scene, Logan was asked to step out of the cruiser and informed that she was going to be arrested for disorderly conduct.  The officer had to forcibly lift Logan out of the car.  In the process Logan lifted her 3 inch high heels aggressively and also “put her hands up and tried to swat” at Wilson

She was then taken to jail where she registered a .11 blood alcohol level.  She has since been released.  Len Zappia, Logan’s attorney, stated:

“She ( Logan ) unequivocally denies any wrong doing.  This is civil in nature, not criminal  I am confident after a thorough investigation by the prosecutor’s office, they will agree that no charges should be filed.”

WNDU initially published a story on the incident and later deleted it, along with all the readers’ comments. CLICK HERE to see a screen capture of that original post and the first page of comments.

UPDATE – I have tried repeatedly to find out more about this case, but it appears there is a local media lockdown and for some reason Erin Logan’s people aren’t talking either. If you know anything about Ms. Logan’s employment or legal status please comment below. If you are upset about the firing and are frustrated that WNDU and other local news organizations are deleting any negative comments about the incident you can visit the “Erin Logan was unjustly fired from WNDU channel 16” page on Facebook.

UPDATE: Erin’s story has inspired a song! CLICK HERE to listen to “The Ballad of Erin Logan” by South Bend freestyle punk band 2-Liter Bomb. Includes an interview with the band’s frontman and complete lyrics.

Here’s a video clip of Erin at work alongside Terry McFadden:

      I have just received word from a VERY RELIABLE source that “No charges are going to be filed against Erin & the incident has been dropped”! COOL, we love you Erin & here’s the link to one of her newest achievements! (I hope it shows up….a video of Erin)

      I too have received word from a VERY RELIABLE source, that no charges were ever filed and that prosecutors have no intention of pursuing charges in the future in this matter.
      Something that I would like to note is that Ms. Logan’s character and career has been irreversibly damaged by the one sided coverage of this incident, not only by WNDU but also by STARCASM and all other local media.
      The actions of WNDU showed a very serious flaw in their reporting AND integrity as a news station. It started with the immediate firing of Ms. Logan and includes the deletion of posts by her fans on their Facebook page. There were never ANY charges filed, which means that there was NO wrong doing on her part. So what reason did they have for her termination?
      Further defamation of her character is seen on this web site by the one sided information and the vulgarity of the links. Starcasm.net has NO idea of who Erin Logan is and the good things she has done for the local and surrounding community. She is a VERY hard working woman and truly cares about the stories she covers. Starcasm will post ANYTHING they can about one of their stories in effort to gain viewers.
      In conclusion I would also like to say that Ms. Logan is respected by MANY people including the Police Dept.’s in the area. She has supported them in the past and I believe that she will continue to do so in the future.
      As testimony of Ms. Logan’s personal integrity and perseverance I submit the link below.
      You can’t keep a good woman down !!!
