After Arrest, Brendan Higgins Out at KTVT

HigginsThe Dallas Morning News reports KTVT anchor Brendan Higgins has left the CBS O&O in Dallas:

Lori Conrad, spokesperson for CBS11, tells Dallas media blogger Ed Bark that “Brendan Higgins is no longer with the station.”

Higgins was arrested after an incident in Aspen, Colorado, that involved a fistfight and allegations the news anchor threatened police officers. In his first public comments, Higgins posted a message to Facebook:

If my email inbox is any indication, many of you are wondering about a recent incident in Aspen, Colo., that resulted in my arrest. Sorry it took so long to issue a post as I’ve been dealing with the related matters. First, I need to apologize for the negative attention this incident has brought to my wife and our family, our friends and the many wonderful people I’ve worked with over the years. I’m also sorry to the authorities in Aspen, who do a great job every day. I simply put myself and others in a bad situation, which will not happen again. My plan is to answer the legal charges against me. Thanks to all of you who have sent your support.
