FORT WAYNE – A WANE-TV reporter was arrested on drunken-driving charges after being pulled over near her home early St. Patrick’s Day morning.
Megan L. Reust, 25, has been charged with misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of at least 0.08 percent but less than 0.15 percent, and was cited for speeding.
According to Allen Superior Court records, Reust’s defense attorney entered a plea agreement on her behalf Wednesday, but details of the plea were not immediately available.
A Fort Wayne police officer clocked Reust driving 57 mph in a 35-mph zone in the area of Hadley Road and Pointe Inverness Way about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
At least 30 minutes after the officer pulled her over, Reust’s blood-alcohol content registered at 0.09 percent. A second test within minutes of the first registered the same level, an affidavit said. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08 percent.
Reust was booked into Allen County Lockup and posted $750 bond. Her license was ordered suspended, according to court records.
A representative for WANE said that station officials do not comment on personnel matters.
