MINNEAPOLIS - A police video shows Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett becoming belligerent and 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 becomes abusive with medics and a police officer intervenes, pushing him up against a wall then 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.
