Fargo Reporter Busted for DUI

A WDAY (Fargo) Reporter was arrested Memorial Day on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Minnesota State Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grabow said Kiersten “Kay” Cooley, 25, was arrested about 5:30 p.m. headed westbound on U.S. Highway 10.

The trooper pulled Cooley over as the result of a citizen’s driving complaint, Grabow said. A preliminary breath test showed Cooley had a blood alcohol content of 0.19 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent.

Cooley was booked into the Becker County Jail on suspicion of fourth-degree driving while intoxicated, which is a misdemeanor.

WDAY News Director Jeff Nelson declined to comment on Tuesday. He said Cooley is still employed at the TV station.

A message left for Cooley wasn’t immediately returned Tuesday.
