A Fox News anchor entered a plea Friday in a case involving an incident in May at an airport. The Associated Press reports that Fox News weekend anchor Gregg Jarrett, 59, pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly conduct linked to a struggle with police officers at an airport bar.
Jarrett entered his plea by petition and didn’t appear in person at the Hennepin County District Court in Minnesota.
“Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said Jarrett’s plea was put on hold for a year and will be thrown out if he doesn’t commit the same or similar offenses and if he abides by certain conditions. Among them, Jarrett can have no alcohol or drug offenses and he must complete treatment,” the AP reports.
As previously reported, Jarrett was arrested at the Northern Lights Grill at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, after police received a report about an intoxicated patron. The AP notes that Jarrett had just been released from an alcohol and chemical dependency treatment facility at the time.
