Former CNN Anchor Arrested For Hit-and-Run With Car Full of Booze Tells Police ‘It’s Hard To Be a Good Person’

Former CNN anchor and correspondent Felicia Taylor has been arrested in Palm Beach over an alleged hit-and-run incident. Taylor told police “it’s hard to be a good person” after police found opened bottles of white wine and a silver thermos of unidentified alcohol.

The retired anchor-correspondent who worked for CNN International’s “World Business Today was arrested on July 28 after she allegedly hit another car while driving her white Mercedes, causing injury to the other driver, then fleeing the scene, according to Palm Beach Police said. Taylor denies the charges.

According to the incident report, Taylor, 57, struck the rear bumper of a black Ford, driven by a 24-year-old man, which was stopped in traffic ahead of her Mercedes.

His vehicle was struck from behind by the white Mercedes. The impact caused [him] to strike the steering wheel, causing multiple complaints of injuries,” the report states.

However, following the impact, Taylor’s Mercedes was seen “fleeing the scene of the accident without rendering aid or stopping to provide information,” the report adds.

Page6 report: Taylor, who is well known on the New York City, Hamptons and Palm Beach social scenes, was then seen twice driving past the scene of the crash in her car, which had “sustained heavy front end damage” without stopping, the report said.

She was then pulled over by a police officer who stated, “Taylor acknowledged being involved in a traffic crash and the other driver was ‘OK.’

Taylor continued to state that she wanted to go back to her house . . . and the accident was ‘not a big deal.’”

She told the police officer she was traveling from The Colony Hotel, “and when confronted that the Colony Hotel was closed, Taylor didn’t have a response.”

She denied being on prescription drugs or having imbibed any alcohol, and the police officer added that he did not smell alcohol on her.
