Amanda Davis Takes Leave of Absence from WAGA After DUI Arrest

WAGA anchor Amanda Davis is taking a leave of absence from the Atlanta Fox O&O after her DUI arrest.

“Amanda Davis is currently away from the television station handling personal matters,” WAGA vice president of news Mike McClain said in a statement Monday afternoon.

Davis had her first court hearing yesterday. She did not appear in the courtroom. Her attorney, William Head, asked that the hearing be reset, according to the station.

Davis was arrested November 11 after she was involved in a wrong-way car accident in the middle of the night. She has not appeared on the station since then.
