He was booked into the Hennepin County Jail on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. The jail’s website shows that Jarrett posted $300 bond and was released early Thursday.
A Fox News spokeswoman, Irena Briganti, didn’t immediately respond to an after-hours email seeking comment about the arrest.
