Drunk Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett Knocked Around By Police Officer After Arrest (Video)

A video has surfaced showing a Fox News anchor’s drunken fight with police after being detained at a Minnesota airport.

According to a police report, Gregg Jarrett was arrested on May 21 after he appeared “to be very intoxicated” at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Jarrett, 59, who had just been released from rehab, was then taken into a holding cell to sober up after he drank vodka and had taken an anti-epileptic medication called Gabapentin.

But airport police said that is when the Fox News anchor became agitated.

The surveillance video, obtained by Gawker under the Freedom of Information Act, shows Jarrett getting into an argument with a police officer who enters the camera frame wearing a helmet.

He then calls the officer a “f****** stupid a**.”

Jarrett stands up and moves closer to the officer until he's in his face.

“Oh, really, you're going to be…” Jarrett said, and the officer quickly grabs his right arm and pushes him against the wall.

When Jarrett continues to protest, the officer grabs him by the left arm and shoves him face-first onto the bench of the holding cell.

Two more officers enter the cell to help subdue Jarrett, placing his hands in cuffs as one cop tells the Fox anchor that he is going to jail.

He was booked for obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer and was released May 22 on a $300 bond.
