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.
