(Newser) – Fox News didn't offer the most ringing endorsement of weekend anchor Gregg Jarrett, who was arrested yesterday at a Minnesota airport. Jarrett "is dealing with serious personal issues at this time," the network said in a statement, according to USA Today. "A date at which Gregg might return to air has yet to be determined." Jarrett hadn't been on the air recently anyway; earlier this month, Fox told TVNewser that he had "requested time off for personal reasons."

Details about Jarrett's arrest remain scarce. Police got involved after an airport employee called a little after noon to report that the 59-year-old "appeared to be acting very intoxicated," according to a police report obtained by the Star-Tribune. Officers said he was "uncooperative, resistant, and combative" when they confronted and arrested him.

One of the worst people of our lifetime, Al Sharpton, has his own show on MSNBC. I'm sorry, Reverend Al Sharpton. ...cuz he's a man of the cloth, of course. Let that marinate for a minute.

Details are scarce? I found plenty of them in a story on another website.
