Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday for refusing to cooperate with airport police who were called to the scene, an airport official said.

Jarrett was taken into custody at around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. He said the officers reported that Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerent and refused to follow orders.

Wonder if this would have happened to him when he worked at CNN? (or was it MSNBC?) Whichever it was…..

This is business as usual at the Obmama Media Group and would not make the news.

Prescription drug and alcohol combo?

Drunk and pissed off. I know what that is like. We are all walking around pissed off, even if we are not aware of it.
Hey Greg! Time to go on the wagon.

Weekend Changes at Fox News; Gregg Jarrett Taking Time Off for ‘Personal Reasons’

May 12, 2014

Fox News tells us Gregg Jarrett “requested time off for personal reasons and Fox obliged.” Jarrett has been with FNC since 2002, joining from MSNBC.

Some folks need a cocktail or two before flying. I can’t help but wonder, though, if some progressive recognized him and bought him one more to put him over the line (set him up) and called about the belligerent drunk.

“...acted belligerent and refused to follow orders....”

As every REAL American should, when faced with democrat/liberal/fedthug fascism.

Hell, that tradition goes back to Lexington Green.

Time to reclaim it.

Was a breathalyzer or other testing done to confirm intoxication? If not, AP, shaddup!

I finally quit viewing FR on mornings I was scheduled for a Doctor's appointment. Some mornings my blood pressure was sky high. I realized that, at the doctor's office, I was still seething over some FR article. I quit viewing FR beforehand, and my BP dropped 10 points.

Hilarious!

I just pointed out Jarrett’s photo to my wife, noting that he had been arrested at the Minneapolis airport...she said, “Not toe-tapping, I hope?”

Never drink when flying. Too many people drink through delays and get hammered.

He was drinking....look at his face

I would never figured him for that

Myself.....I’m combative with popo and I never drink

Little tax collectors..they pull me over late in my truck just to see if I’m drinking....old guy....pickup....rural.....out late

They hassle and ask questions none of their business

They should study how civil wars go for folks in their line of work

Just saying...

If you have to be stuck at an airport for extended hours, you can’t do much better than MSP. Lots of options for both eating and shopping. Mall of the Americas is just a short ride on public transportation.

I did the same thing with C-SPAN’s Washington Journal. Starting the morning off with deranged liberals spouting off on TV was not a fun way to go through life. My mornings are much better now.

It's just the wussification of America.

He probably had some person card him for a drink and he bitched about it.

Then the girlyman bartender called the police.

Hell I thought journalists were supposed to be hard drinkers and get in your face.

Just another step in the anti-male, planned decline of the former USA.

Last time I had a problem with TSA was in Minneapolis.
The Brownshirt did everything he could to get me to say something provocative.
This guy WANTED to arrest someone and I was his target.

What exactly was the crime this gentleman committed?
Who did he harm?
What is the cost of the damage?

Was it a case of someone having too much to think?

Someone must have recognized him. How dare he show his non-Obama-supporting face at a public venue.

He will pay for this travesty.

He was also accused of inebriation.
What was his blood alcohol level?
Surely the officials have some sort of evidence of some sort of wrongdoing, or is that not really necessary anymore?

No one should be drunk just after noon. I think that this will prove to be just one of those arrests that are actually made to protect the arrestee from himself.
They’ll probably drop the charges or let him plead to something minor.

It’s a shame. I heard Glenn Beck mention it on his program this morning. Beck seemed to be aware from his tenure with Fox News that Gregg Jarrett had a problem (alcohol, he implied). He said that Jarrett had requested time off to deal with it, but apparently had not made it there yet (presumably rehab). He said he hoped for Jarrett to get well.
