Fox News Anchor Arrested After Incident At Minneapolis Airport Bar

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was briefly jailed Wednesday after an incident at a bar in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that police were called to respond to a report of an intoxicated man at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport’s main terminal. An airport spokesman said Jarrett seemed intoxicated and was acting belligerent, according to the Associated Press.

Officers took Jarrett into custody around 12:30 p.m. when he allegedly refused to follow orders, according to the Tribune. The Hennepin County Jail roster lists a tab charge as the reason for his arrest. Jarrett was released around 1:30 a.m. Thursday on $300 bail.

The jail roster shows Jarrett is due in court on June 6.

Jarrett reportedly requested time off from Fox News earlier this month for personal reasons. He currently serves as a weekend co-anchor for “America’s News HQ.”
