MINNEAPOLIS -- 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 April 12 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 59-year-old network anchor was arrested shortly after noon at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport. Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said officers reported Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerently and refused to follow orders.

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

After the arrest, Fox News issued a statement saying Jarrett "is dealing with serious personal issues at this time."

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