FOX News Anchor Arrested Drunk & Belligerent

File this under sanctimonious news anchors can do stupid things just like the rest of us.  Gregg Jarrett of Fox News was arrested after getting “turnt up” at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and having some sort of scuffle with the police that they did not take to kindly to.  Jarrett, 59 years young, spent a dozen hours in jail after being arrested on charges of interfering with a police officer.gregg_jarrett

He is reported to have been “belligerent and uncooperative” when he encountered police officers and was allegedly drunk at an airport bar.

Like any good PR person would do in a situation requiring some damage control, a spokesman for Fox News said “He is dealing with serious personal issues at this time.”

I dug up a video where Mr. Jarrott seems to be slurring his words, or maybe he just does not have a firm grasp of the English language a little bit.  Maybe it is from…alcohol perhaps?

All joking aside – I hope if he indeed is suffering from some sort of alcohol abuse or dependence issue, he gets the help he needs.  He is like everybody else, and not immune to the tortures of alcoholism.  I hope he has the humility and courage to do what he needs to do to take care of himself right now.  If he takes action now he can stop the hemorrhaging before his career bleeds out.

    I watched a video of this guy on TV where he appeared to be trying to hold it together. The same type of “holding it together” drunk drivers tell policemen they have been pulled over by.

    Why do these people think they can hide the obvious?

    Hope it gets help.

    • Unfortunately, by the time the warning signs start to become apparent enough that someone with a substance abuse problem is showing outward signs of intoxication like this…it is pretty progressed. To be fair, this could just be this news anchor coping with a bad situation in his life and an isolated incident. But my bet, he has had a serious problem that has gone unnoticed for a while. It is often surprising how long people with such problems go about their lives dealing with alcoholism or drug addiction all while juggling demanding jobs.
