MINNEAPOLIS » A police video shows Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett 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 curses as medical personal evaluate him. A police officer steps in to intervene and indicates that Jarrett has put his hands on him. The officer then pushes him up against a wall, 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.
