This Summer has seen a number of News Anchors thrown in the slammer.
The latest to get pinched by the Po Po is KOLO 8 (Reno) News Anchor Pat Hambright.
The station says that Hambright is facing multiple charges after his arrest late Saturday night.
The charges include misdemeanor “DUI, above legal limit, 1-ST”, felony “child abuse or neglect, 1-ST” and misdemeanor “fail to decrease speed or use due care.”
One of Hambright’s children was in the car at the time of the arrest in Reno.
KOLO 8 management takes such charges seriously. The station says that Hambright is on leave from KOLO 8.
In other words, don't expect to see him on their air again.
Props to KOLO for reporting the story.
