Ex-Fox News Star Ed Henry Arrested in Florida

Ex-Fox News reporter Ed Henry, who was accused of raping a co-worker, has been arrested in Florida.

According to information on the police report, Henry was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Henry was the former chief White House correspondent for Fox and co-anchor of “America’s Newsroom.”

After being accused of raping ex-Fox News employee Jennifer Eckhart and sexual harassment by another employee, Cathy Areu, Henry was fired by the network.

He was arrested in West Palm Beach around 8 p.m. on June 20.

Henry was taken into custody when a sheriff’s deputy spotted his Black Cadillac Escalade cruising down the street with a flat tire and exposed metal rim grinding against the road.

He was unaware he had a flat and was shooting off sparks as he drove down the road, according to a deputy’s report.

He was arrested for DUI.

The report said: “In doing this the front driver’s side tire came off the rim and rolled into the eastbound lanes almost striking an oncoming vehicle.

“That vehicle had to apply its brakes and swerve to avoid being hit by the tire.”

Henry, 51, pulled into a Cadillac dealership where the deputy made his move.

The report continues: “While Henry was talking, I was able to smell the odor of unknown alcohol coming from his breath.

“Henry had glassy and bloodshot eyes.

“His gait was unsteady.

“His speech was slightly slurred.”

Henry failed parts of the field sobriety test including the “one leg stand,” the “walk and turn” and the “finger to nose.”

“Henry used the pad of his finger instead of the tip on all tasks,” the report said.

“He swayed during the tasked and tilted his head forward.”

According to the police report, Henry admitted to having a few drinks but blew into the breathalyzer and was found to be under the limit.

But he was arrested anyway due to his behavior.

It’s unclear whether the DUI charge would stick.
