[image-1]According to an incident report from the Charleston Police Department, Live 5 News weekend anchor and reporter Meaghan Wallace was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct around 1:15 a.m. Friday.
Two officers on foot patrol on Calhoun Street were met by a cab driver who stated that his passenger had lost consciousness. After the officers requested medical assistance, Wallace allegedly refused to answer most of the officers’ questions regarding her well-being and destination.
The report notes that officers noticed a strong odor of alcohol from Wallace, who needed officer assistance to locate her identification. According to the report, Wallace “constantly rebuked” officers’ attempts at assisting her, and she began to shout obscenities while refusing to cooperate with police.
After being informed by the officer that she would be taken to jail if she did not provide an address for the cab driver, she allegedly stated, “I don’t give a fuck, take me to jail,” according to the report. As officers attempted to remove Wallace from the cab, she repeatedly stated, “Are you fucking serious?” according to the report.
Wallace was later transported and lodged at Al Cannon Detention Center around 2:15 a.m. The sheriff’s office website shows that Wallace was released around 10:17 a.m.
