Gregg Jarrett, Fox News Anchor, Arrested After Incident At Minneapolis Airport Bar

Fox News Anchor Arrested

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested on Tuesday after an incident in a bar at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

A roster at Hennepin County Jail shows Jarrett, 59, being held on obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer, a misdemeanor. His bail was set at $300.

The news came just days after it was announced that Jarrett, a weekend anchor, would be taking time off for "personal reasons," TV Newser reported last week.

Police responded to a report of a drunken man at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport's main terminal, the Star Tribune reports. When they arrived, Jarrett appeared to be drunk and refused to obey orders, according to KARE.

Shortly after news of the arrest was reported, Jarrett's mug shot began making the round on social media:

On Thursday, Fox News addressed the incident in a statement to TV Newser. “He is dealing with serious personal issues at this time," a spokesperson said. "A date at which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined..”

According to his bio on the Fox News website, Jarrett joined the network in 2002 and is based in New York.
