Known for Slurred Newscast, Anchor Annie Stensrud Charged with DWI

Annie Stensrud, the KEYC anchor who became a viral sensation after slurring her way through a newscast in early December, has been formally charged with drunk driving, following her arrest on December 21st.

Stensrud is facing one gross misdemeanor charge of Driving While Impaired as well as two misdemeanor DWI charges, according to KEYC.

The Mankato Free Press reports that a urine test administered just over an hour after Stensrud was arrested registered a blood-alcohol level of .31, nearly four times the legal limit.

Stensrud, who has not appeared on KEYC since the slurred newscast, was arrested just before noon on the 21st after police received an anonymous tip that a woman was driving drunk through Mankato.

She is scheduled to appear in court on February 28th.

KEYC has refused to comment on Stensrud’s arrest.
