WBC-TV anchor Liz Cho, who married former NBC Sports Anchor Josh Elliot last July, was arrested Monday, February 22nd at 10:52am on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for allegedly using her cellphone while conducting her vehicle. When she was apprehended, the officers than realized that she was driving with a suspended license through a routine check.
Her license was suspended due to a a previous insurance lapse. She was released without bail and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation and being an unlicensed operator. Liz Cho was informed about her flagged license due to a lapsed insurance from a couple years ago although she had valid insurance now.
“She was cool. She was calm. She wasn’t rattled by the situation,” a source told about Cho. Although she was arrested while operating her new 2016 BMW, she kept her composure and was not put in handcuffs during her arrest.
Once she was released from jail, she then went into work and still co-anchored her usual 4pm to 6pm newscast.
