Former Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry arrested for DUI

Ed Henry, a former Fox News chief national correspondent, was arrested last month for DUI according to police records.

Henry, who was let go in 2020 for allegations of sexual misconduct, was arrested by the West Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for driving under the influence of alcohol. 

Henry was driving in his black Cadillac Escalade when sheriff's pulled him over after an officer observed Henry was driving with a flat driver side front tire.

Henry's tire actually ended up coming off of the rim and rolled into traffic where one driver was forced to avoid it, thankfully avoiding a wreck or any damage.

Out of control

When officers stopped Henry to check what was going on with him, it became immediately apparent that he was impaired.

The deputy that stopped Henry wrote in the report, "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 admitted that he had consumed two bourbons that evening and officers conducted a field sobriety test on him to determine if he was safe to drive.

Henry failed the test which consisted of the “one leg stand, walk and turn, and finger on the nose."

The deputy in charge stated that Henry, “swayed during the [task] and tilted his head forward," leading to Henry's arrest despite him blowing just below the legal limit of .08 on a breathalyzer.

A statement from Henry's attorney read, “Mr. Henry cooperated with law enforcement during their investigation. He respectfully provided a sample of his breath that was below a .08, and thus below the legal limit in Florida."

Ongoing legal troubles

Back in 2020, Fox News associate producer Jennifer Eckhart accused Henry of sexual harassment and rape.

Interestingly, Fox News decided to let Henry go because of “willful sexual misconduct" stemming from a separate incident in 2017.

A lawsuit against Henry claims, "Mr. Henry not only leveraged this imbalance of power for control over his victim, Ms. Eckhart, but asked her to be his ‘sex slave’ and his ‘little whore,’ and threatened punishment and retaliation if Ms. Eckhart did not comply with his sexual demands."

Henry isn't doing himself any favors with his driving behavior considering he already has a lot on his plate.
