No, Fox News’ Chris Wallace Was Not Arrested During Radio Interview

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace was stopped by an officer Thursday morning during an interview with radio host Jamie Allman. Wallace was discussing Barack Obama‘s campaign on his cell phone while driving through Washington DC, prompting an officer to pull him over. Some blogs, including The Gateway Pundit, are reporting that Wallace was arrested during the interview.

Wallace noted during the interview that he probably should not have been talking on his phone while driving. “Jamie, I’m going to have a problem here,” he said, interrupting the host. “I’m talking to you on a cell phone and there’s a police man here and I probably shouldn’t have been talking on a cell phone. So, uh. I’m about to get arrested. Good-bye.”

We reached out to Fox News and they confirmed that he was not arrested.
