Gregg Jarrett, a weekend co-anchor on the FOX News Channel, was arrested and briefly jailed for a bar-related incident at Minneapolis-St.Paul Airport.

Patrick Hogan, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said Mr. Jarrett was taken into custody at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal on Wednesday, the Star Tribune reported.

Police were called to the bar over a reported intoxicated man, the newspaper reported. When they arrived, Mr. Jarrett allegedly refused to follow their directions. Mr. Hogan said police reported he seemed intoxicated and acted belligerent, the New York Post reported.

Mr. Jarrett, 59, was taken to the Hennepin County Jail for obstructing police and given a bond of $300, the New York Post said.

The Star Tribune reported he was released a few hours later and given a court date of June 6.

“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 at which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined,” a Fox News spokeswoman said.
