Gregg Jarrett spent some time behind bars.

The Fox News anchor was jailed for a dozen hours after having a run-in with a police officer at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Wednesday.

The 59-year-old was arrested after reportedly being "belligerent and uncooperative" with police officers who responded to a call yesterday that Jarrett was under the influence at an airport bar, according to airport spokesman Patrick Hogan. Local reports state that a bar employee called police to say Jarrett "appeared to be acting very intoxicated," possibly from mixing alcohol with a narcotic. Responding officers found Jarrett to be "uncooperative, resistant and combative" during his arrest.

He was released from the Hennepin County Jail on a $300 bond early Thursday, and has a June 6 court date on a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of the legal process and interfering with a peace officer.

Fox News released the following statement: "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 joined Fox News 12 years ago, but has been on an indefinite leave since mid-April after he "requested time off for personal reasons and Fox obliged."
