TMZ is reporting that Jay Gray, an NBC News correspondent, was arrested and charged with DUI near State College, Pa., last week. The website also says Gray was cited after leaving a party at the home of Sandusky's attorney, Lawyerin' Joe Amendola. Gray and other reporters "vying for an exclusive interview with Sandusky" were also present, TMZ says. Gray is said to have gotten "really drunk" while watching the Giants-Cowboys game at Amendola's house on Sunday, Dec. 11, and he was stopped by the Pennsylvania State Police for an undisclosed traffic violation that became a DUI.
That's worth repeating. An NBC News correspondent covering Jerry Sandusky's hearing-that-wasn't-a-hearing allegedly got "really drunk" while partying with Sandusky's lawyer. Then he got popped on a DUI. 1-800-HILARIOUS!
A message left at Amendola's office has not been returned. We will update if we get any further details.
