MINNEAPOLIS — Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett has been charged with a misdemeanour following his arrest at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for allegedly refusing to co-operate 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. Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says officers reported Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerently and refused to follow orders.

Surprised they didn't shoot him.
I’ve read about 2 dozen media stories about this arrest. Too bad the media doesn’t apply the same dedication to stories about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the IRS or the VA.
He was in Minnesota for rehab. Thread yesterday give more details
Refused to follow orders? that’s a crime?
They would have,but he didn’t have a dog with him!
Since when has the lack of a dog kept police from murdering innocent civilians?
Wrong politics can get u arrested
Did he ask if they knew who he was? Because that usually works.
If that doesn’t work, politely pointing out that your taxes pay their salary usually does the trick!
In America it is Comrade.
I decided I didn’t like Jarrett a little while ago when he made a snide remark about Sarah Palin. He thought he was sooooo superior.
On his way to rehab—or just out of rehab?
,,,,,, “ What difference does it make ??? “
Not always. I have a friend who retired from 30 years as a cop in a major city who had a couple of well-known or well-connected people try the "Do you know who I am??" on him after he pulled them over for suspected DUI. He would take his hand mike and pretend to call his unit (but not key the mike so the call actually didn't go out)and say "Better send the car from the Psych Unit out here. I have a fellow who doesn't know who he is". People settled down and got very cooperative after that....
He was not innocent; the story said he didn’t obey police orders.
Smugg A kinda hole anyway.
He had gone thru detox. Guess he’s back in now
I believe I read that he’s a Hillary supporter.
The only reason we hear about this story is because he is a news media broadcaster. How may ‘unimportant” people who have done the same thing are ever written about, not many I can assure you.
IMO this is just another human begin who seems to have a drinking problem. I’d bet there are some right here on FR that could be the same guy? I am not accusing anyone just pointing out it can happen to anyone.
A FOX news personality. Bet others from other stations have bigger problems and are not seeking help
And their problems aren’t being reported to the world...
Ive read about 2 dozen media stories about this arrest.

How many of those pointed out he had stopped working for Fox while dealing with personal problems ~2 weeks before?
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.
I pray that Mr. Jarrett gets the help he needs to overcome his addiction and solve his underlying problems.
Q. Why is this news?
A. Because it was NOT Brian Kilmeade!
Alcohol abuse and alcohoiism, with its attendatnt behaviors, knows no political persuasion.
They are equal opportunity.
Notice we have not heard from nor seen hide nor hair of Gregg Jarret since his arrest in May.
What did he DO? Well on November 8, 2013 — a full 8 months ago — he had the audacity of putting on an interview that Obama was finished. No friends. No support. No way, no how would he ever recover. (smirk)
I can just hear the Boy Emperor screaming, “Off with his head!”.
Here is the interview with Wall Street Journal dude (who is probably also on the $hit list and/or equally ‘gone’):
