NBC 5 confirms Jane McGarry, the anchor of NBC 5 News at 5 p.m. and Nonstop Nightly at 6:30 p.m., was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.
This incident happened on Sunday morning.
According to Christian Post, she failed to signal a lane change and was pulled over:
McGarry’s arrest came after she reportedly failed to signal a lane change. When police pulled her over, they stated that she had “bloodshot, droopy eyes and used a loud tone of voice.” She explained that she had had three glasses of wine but refused a breathalyzer, instead opting to take a blood test.
Do you think Jane McGarry should be fired as a news anchor? Do we hold people in the public eye a bit more accountable because of the fact that maybe they should know better? Perhaps because news anchors report this sort of thing on the news just about every day?
