Veteran Atlanta news anchor Amanda Davis of Fox 5 has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol after a wrong-way wreck.

The anchor at WAGA in Atlanta was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue early Sunday morning when the crash occurred, according to the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.

Davis was arrested near Piedmont and 14th in Atlanta.

"Upon speaking with both drivers, the officer noticed an odor of alcohol emanating from Ms. Davis' person," Sgt. Lyon said in a statement, according to 11 Alive. "He asked her if she had been drinking, to which she did respond in the affirmative."

Davis would not take a field sobriety test, but a DUI officer found probable cause to arrest her, according to 11 Alive. Davis was charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain lane. Her license was confiscated and she was taken to jail.

One thought on “Atlanta TV Anchor Arrested For DUI

  1. I know when people drink they REALLY think they are OK to drive. But they really aren’t. We all can play a part in preventing drinking and driving. It goes on in the hood more than we probably realize. We all should look out for one another and do whatever it takes to prevent it. I’m at least happy Ms Davis or no one was seriously hurt. NEVER go out by your self and drink where you have no other option but drive yourself. Friends of these people should not stand for it and/or help as a designated driver. And when you KNOW someone has been drinking, don’t ask them “are you OK”!!! HELL NAW they ain’t OK dispite whatever they say. Drunks don’t think straight. Take charge and take the keys!!
