Heidi Jones' wolf cry is topping the search charts. Last month, the WABC-TV meteorologist told police a Hispanic male dragged her off a jogging trail in New York’s central Park and tried to rape her.

Jones, who also appears on Good Morning America, has been suspended by WABC and faces up to a year in prison if convicted. Her attorney warns against jumping to conclusions.
