The Star Tribune

Fox News weekend anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, Joy Powell reports in The (Minneapolis) Star Tribune.

Police had been called about an intoxicated man at the grill. Officers reported Jarrett refused to follow orders and was arrested for obstruction of the legal process and taken to jail.

Jarrett was charged with obstruction of legal process and interfering with a police officer, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. He posted $300 bond and is due in court June 6, Powell reports.

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