Fox News anchor released following airport arrest

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett has been released from jail following his arrest at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for refusing to cooperate with police.

Authorities say the 59-year-old network anchor was arrested about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal. Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan says officers reported that Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerently and refused to follow their orders.

He was booked into the Hennepin County Jail on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. The jail’s website shows that Jarrett posted $300 bond and was released early Thursday.

A Fox News spokeswoman, Irena Briganti, didn’t immediately respond to an after-hours email seeking comment about the arrest.
