Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested last night at a lounge in the Minneapolis airport.
Jarrett, 59, is charged in Hennepin County District Court with a misdemeanor, obstructing the legal process, interfering with a police officer and has an arraignment scheduled in an Edina courtroom for June 6. Jarrett, who is a weekend co-anchor on the FOX News Channel, was arrested about 12:30 p.m. at Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, said Patrick Hogan, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Airports Commission. Jarrett was released from custody shortly after 1:30 a.m. Thursday after a $300 bond was posted, according to Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office records. The records show he’s due in court on June 6. 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.
A spokesman for Fox News said that Jarrett is on leave from the network. The spokesman added: “He is dealing with serious personal issues at this time. A date at which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined.”
