Longtime NBC 5 anchor Jane McGarry got popped for DUI over the weekend. She was stopped early Sunday morning in a 2007 Porsche, WFAA reported, after failing to use her signal on the tollway. She refused to take a breathalyzer and was booked into Dallas County jail, where they apparently let her freshen (and sober?) up before shooting the simply delightful mugshot at right.

McGarry is an active Tweeter but has been silent since the arrest. Her fans, no so much. Some shot straight to her Facebook page to make sure she knew she was still loved.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
