NBC reporter arrested for drunk driving after attending party at Sandusky lawyer's house

"Jay Gray, the NBC News reporter covering the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal in State College, Pennsylvania, was arrested on drunk driving charges after he attended a drunken football-watching party at Sandusky's lawyer's house, reports say.

The Pennsylvania State Police arrested Gray just before 2am December 12 during a traffic stop.

He was allegedly at the home of Joe Amendola, the eccentric lawyer defending Sandusky against allegations he molested 10 boys over the course of several years.

According to TMZ, Mr Amendola invited Gray and several other reporters over to his house to watch the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game.

The reporters, reportedly, were all vying for exclusive interviews with Sandusky, who has only further raised public suspicious about himself in two awkward media appearances, says TMZ. ...

During the party at Mr Amendola's State College house, TMZ claims Gray got 'really drunk.'

Around midnight, he got in his car to drive back to his hotel and was stopped by police.

He was released on bail after his arrest.

NBC has not commented on the case and neither has Gray.

Gray is a national correspondent for the network who has covered stories across the country.

According to a report in the Harrisburg Patriot-News, Mr Amendola wants Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, to appear in an exclusive network interview.

Gray and the other reporters were likely trying to win favors to get them the air time, TMZ says." via RadioDailyNews. photo msnbc via UK Daily Mail
