    Newsman Sam Donaldson is making headlines of his own.

    The former ABC News anchor was arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier this month in Lewes, Del., E! News has confirmed.

    Per local authorities, on Dec. 1 police stopped the 78-year-old shortly before 8 p.m. following a traffic violation, and an officer determined that the veteran newsman was intoxicated.
