Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested for being drunk and belligerent and refusing to follow police orders at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar.

Police officers were called to the airport after receiving reports about a highly intoxicated man. When police arrived, they found a very drunk Jarrett who was acting belligerent. He refused to obey police orders and as a result, he was arrested. He was taken into custody at around 12.30pm Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal of the airport, the New York Daily News reports.

The 59-year-old journalist was booked on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. The charge is a misdemeanor. Jarrett's bond was set at $300.  He was forced to stay at Hennepin County Jail until around 1:30 a.m. Thursday but was then released.
Jarrett is due in court on June 6.

Fox News released a statement about the incident saying, "We were made aware late last night that Gregg Jarrett was arrested in Minneapolis yesterday and charged with a misdemeanor. He is dealing with serious personal issues at this time. A date for which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined."

Jarrett was placed on leave before the incident as he requested time off for personal reasons. Some of his most recent, big stories include he murder trial of George Zimmerman and the crash of Asiana Flight 214 at the San Francisco Airport.

Jarreett is married is Catherine Kennedy Anderson and they have two daughters together. The anchor joined the Fox News Channel in November 2002 after working for MSNBC and Court TV.
