Fox News co-anchor Gregg Jarrett got a first-hand look at the scene inside the Hennepin County Jail yesterday after being arrested at a bar in Minneapolis-St.Paul Airport around 12:30pm. Police had been called about an intoxicated man at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, and the 59-year-old was arrested after acting belligerently and refusing to follow police orders, an airport official tells the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He was charged with obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer and bail was set at $300. He was released around 1:30am today. A Fox News spokeswoman didn't respond to a request for comment from the AP. (Read more Gregg Jarrett stories.)
