Video of Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett's May 21 arrest at MSP Airport shows him swearing at a cop just before the officer gets fed up, puts him in an arm bar, and roughly slams him to the ground. (Read the backstory here.)

The altercation took place while Jarrett, who was fresh out of rehab at the time, was in custody "for a possible detox/crisis hold due to the reports received that he was mixing medications with alcohol" at an MSP bar, as an officer put it in his report. But after the incident, one of the officers handcuffed him and said, "Now you're going to jail."

A visibly intoxicated Jarrett wouldn't answer questions posed to him by an officer, who described him as "very unsteady while sitting at the bar, swaying back and forth while sitting, having to use the bar to support him from falling over."

With lots of holiday travelers taking to the skies, that state of affairs is obviously far from ideal. But in this day and age, officials took proper precautions and evacuated that part of the airport until it could be determined the box/package wasn't dangerous.

TV news producer detained while tailing 9-year-old stowaway back to Minneapolis

-- Updated with name of the producer and upcoming hearing --

This weekend, the nine-year-old boy who sneaked onto a plane to Las Vegas and made national headlines returned to Minneapolis along with two bodyguards and a stealthy TV producer, who was detained and questioned here.

An NBC station in Nevada says the producer tried taking a photograph of the boy after the plane landed. That producer, John Getter, described the boy and the scene this way:
Bigger than expected and slept much of the trip. He was in the back of the airplane with two guys guarding him. He was last to get off. Police surrounded him, but he didn't come through (the) terminal. About 10 cops helped escort him off the flight onto tarmac away from the crowds and the terminal.
A picture of the boy has emerged in the last week that suggests he's both cunning and troubled. In an email leaked to the Strib, one Hennepin County social service official described the boy as "challenging" and said he has a history of sneaking into a Bloomington water park. He may also have stolen a car last month and later a truck, which he then crashed into a police squad car.
