Jarrett was taken into custody at around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. He said the officers reported that Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerent and refused to follow orders.

Jarrett, 59, was booked into Hennepin County Jail on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. His bond was set at $300.

A court appearance hadn’t been scheduled, and it wasn’t clear late Wednesday whether he had been released.

A Fox News spokeswoman, Irena Briganti, didn’t immediately respond to an after-hours email seeking comment about the arrest.\
