When Police Arrested Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett at the airport in Minneapolis, they found gabapentin pills in his pocket, according to the report.
Gabapentin does not mix well with alcohol and is used as a anticonvulsant used to treat conditions ranging from epilepsy to restless leg syndrome, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. "Strange or unusual thoughts" and drowsiness are listed as potential side effects of the medication. Alcohol may add to the drowsiness, the Library of Medicine adds.
Police also found when they searched Jarrett's bag it was revealed he was recently released from an alcohol and chemical dependency treatment facility.
It appears that rehab stint didn't work very well.
A Fox News spokeswoman said Jarrett, who has not been on the air since mid-April, is dealing with "serious personal issues" and his return to the air has yet to be determined.
