Fox news anchor Gregg Jarret was arrested for a drunken altercation at a bar at Minnesota airport on Tuesday night. He was taken into custody just after midnight for reported drunken behaviour at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said.
The reporter was said to have been abusive and uncooperative with police officers after arguing with staff and patrons. Jarrett, 59, was booked on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer, which is a misdemeanor. He was released hours later with his bond set at $300.
Jarret was reported to have requested time off from Fox earlier in the month due to ‘personal reasons’ which the station granted.
