Fox Toledo weatherman Mike Morrison was arrested yesterday on misdemeanor charges of public indecency, intoxication, and resisting arrest.
Toledo police arrested Mr. Morrison, 41, of 6015 Nebraska Ave. at 1:10 a.m. yesterday at the Dirty Martini Lounge, 18 Main St. in East Toledo, according to booking information. He was taken to the Lucas County jail, where he was held for several hours and released.
Mr. Morrison, who is chief meteorologist at WUPW-TV, Fox's Toledo affiliate, joined the station in 2006 after stints in Grand Junction, Colo., and Corpus Christi, Texas.
Fox Toledo news director Steve France said he was "aware of Mr. Morrison's personal situation" and declined further comment.
The Toledo police report on the incident had not been filed yet last night. The three charges were classified as fourth-degree misdemeanors, for which conviction carries a maximum jail term of 30 days, a fine of up to $250, or both.
Mr. Morrison is scheduled to be arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court.
