Fox News Anchor Arrested After Incident At Minneapolis Airport Bar

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett

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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
