A Jefferson County District Court judge has dismissed a DUI charge against former WDRB sports anchor John Lewis.

Lewis’ May 2011 arrest occurred while he was driving a station vehicle. He resigned from the Louisville Fox-affiliate the following day.

“I’m glad the DUI charge has been dismissed and will be expunged from my record very soon. I’m looking forward to moving on personally and professionally,” Lewis said.

WDRB Sports Anchor John Lewis Busted for DUI While Driving Station Vehicle

WDRB sports anchor John Lewis was pulled over early Monday morning while driving a vehicle emblazoned with the Fox-affiliate’s logo and arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

According to Louisville CBS-affiliate WLKY, police pulled Lewis over shortly after he left a local bar around 3:53 a.m. He was driving a Ford Escape with “FOX 41 HD” markings on the side.

After failing several field sobriety tests, Lewis was arrested and charged with a DUI. His blood-alcohol level was later tested at 0.133 percent. The legal limit in Kentucky is 0.08.

Lewis has been with WDRB since 2001 and most recently served as the station’s weekend sports anchor. WDRB has not yet commented on Lewis’s arrest but his bio has been removed from the station’s website.
