Police video shows Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett's arrest

Raw: Video Released of Fox Anchor Arrest

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A police video shows Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett becoming belligerent and struggling with an officer at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The video shows him in a holding cell May 21 after he appeared intoxicated at an airport restaurant.

In the video, Jarrett becomes abusive with medics and a police officer intervenes, pushing him up against a wall then forcing him onto his knees with his face pressed against a bench. The officer orders Jarrett to quit resisting and cuffs his hands behind his back.

Jarrett is charged with interfering with a peace officer.

The police report says Jarrett had just been released from a treatment facility. A prescription drug was found in his pocket.

Jarrett's attorney and a Fox News spokeswoman did not return messages seeking comment Wednesday morning.

I watched the video twice
and still could not see why the cop tossed Jarrett like than.
Most FOX viewers and yes that is both Liberals and Conservatives
know this man as a very good person.
He has been going through some very difficult personal issues and had been on a doctor prescribed drug that affected his behavior.
We should all hope / wish for Gregg Jarrett's recovery and wellbeing.

What did he do that required him to be tossed around like a rag doll?

What's upsetting is posting stuff like this; Jarret is having personal problems and to post this only harms him. I pray he gets well.

Wow, this is clearly, CLEARY a case of police abuse! Don't see where Jarrett touched the cop. This cop is a bully and one that doesn't like handsome men! The cop is a loser! He needs to be off the force. TOTAL over-reaction by these ********! And why didn't the other cops intervene? So what if Jarrett had a few? SO WHAT? Who was he bothering?

The officer was not wrong. But then those worshipping Rove and Murdoch can't possibly comprehend the correct difference between right vs. wrong.

And here I thought that the police only bullied minorities. You can tell that chubby cop enjoys his work, he reminds me of the stubby kid at school that everybody picked on and now he’s getting some payback. Just telling it like I see it.

The cop must feel like a big man with little man syndrome, Felt like a hero tossing around a guy that clearly WAS NOT resisting. Jarrett should sue the little prick!

Don't see where Jarrett did anything to warrent treatment like this....the officer jumped him and knocked him to the bench without any need for this bullying. He should be repromanded for this action, and his commander should suspend him for this behavior
