Trey Heath tweeted an image with the caption, "I asked him to come to bed. He said, 'after I check News Channel 3 radar.'"

At least WREG caught the error and apologized. They also tweeted, "Have you you changed your passwords recently? Take it from us... Do it now. Also, resist public WiFi. For real..."
