A Wausau Anchor was busted Easter Morning for driving drunk.

WAOW Anchor Emily Jaceks was arrested early Sunday morning by Wausau Police on an OWI charge.

Cops says that Jaceks was pulled over around 1:30am after an officer observed her driving the wrong-way down North 6th Street in Downtown Wausau.

The arresting officer told Jaceks she passed a field sobriety test, but failed a breathalyzer.

That test indicated she was twice the legal limit. Jaceks was booked and later released.

Her court appearance is set for May 17th.

Jaceks will be issuing a statement regarding the arrest during Tonight's 9pm and 10pm newscasts.

Jaceks has only been at the station since December.
