Intern Goes On Rampage After Firing

A Minnesota college student allegedly went on an obscenity-laced rampage at a local television station after being fired as an intern, court charges say.

According to the Star Tribune in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Jennifer Nicole Anato-Mensah, a 21-year-old University of Minnesota student, is accused of chasing after an executive producer at KSTP-TV who had just fired her, damaging company property along the way.

Anato-Mensah made threats and shouted obscenities at executive producer Danielle Prenevost after the firing, telling her "You don't know where I'm from, I'll mess you up," according to a criminal complaint.

The newly-fired intern also allegedly kicked in a conference room window in an attempt to reach Prenevost during the Oct. 13 incident before being restrained by a male employee, the complaint said.

Anato-Mensah faces misdemeanor criminal damage to property charges and is scheduled to make a Dec. 30 court appearance.
