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.
