BRING BACK JANE MCGARRY
The Petition A longtime KXAS-TV anchor was suspended after being arrested early Sunday in Dallas County on SUSPICION of driving while intoxicated, according to local news reports. A Department of Public Safety trooper stopped Jane McGarry, 56, who was driving a 2007 Porsche, after she failed to signal a lane change on the Dallas North Tollway, according to The Dallas Morning News. She had bloodshot, droopy eyes, swayed and "used a loud tone of voice when talking," a DPS report said. She also failed several sobriety tests including the "walk and turn," the "one-leg stand" and reciting the alphabet after she was stopped at 1:30 a.m., The Morning News reported. McGarry admitted to drinking three glasses of wine, according to the report, but refused a breathalyzer test. A mandatory blood sample was then taken, reports say. McGarry had no previous DWI arrests, and she has no previous convictions, according to the Dallas County Sheriff's Department. She has been with the station since 1992, according to the KXAS-TV Channel 5 website. "NBC 5 station management is looking into the matter this evening and has no further comment," Brian Hocker, vice president of programming for KXAS-TV, said Sunday. It was NOT proven that was intoxicated.
