Posted on

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Wednesday afternoon for refusing to cooperate with police.

The America’s News HQ anchor was taken into custody around 12:30 p.m. at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, where he appeared intoxicated and refused to follow officers’ orders, reports The Associated Press. The 59-year-old was charged with obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer and booked at the Hennepin County Jail.

Jarrett posted $300 bond and was released early Thursday.

Update: A Fox News spokesperson has given EW the following statement:

“We were made aware late last night that Gregg Jarrett was arrested in Minneapolis yesterday and charged with a misdemeanor. He is dealing with serious personal issues at this time. A date at which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined.”
