Ric Dupont Resigns From KFOX After Public Intoxication Arrest

Ric Dupont has resigned from KFOX in El Paso after being arrested on suspicion of public intoxication last month, according to the El Paso Times.

“He resigned this morning,” news director Elizabeth O’Hara said Wednesday.

Dupont was arrested on October 30 at El Paso International Airport. He was held at the police airport on suspicion of being intoxicated and released to a friend without being charged or booked. A police spokesperson told the El Paso Times that Dupont became “uncooperative with officers at one point due to his intoxication.”

Dupont, who joined KFOX’s East Side Bureau¬† in 2011, was arrested on suspicion of DUI last December. That case is still pending in court.
