Source - A Las Vegas news anchor was arrested after being found naked and passed out in her car, police said.
Fox 5 Las Vegas morning weekday anchor and reporter Feven Kiflegiorgis was busted nude and asleep behind the wheel of her Audi at about 7:30 a.m. March 20, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Kiflegiorgis, known as Feven Kay, told cops she didn’t remember how she got to the location where she was found.
Officers also reported the smell of alcohol emanating from the reporter, but she declined to submit to blood testing, according to the report.
The East Africa native, who grew up in California, noted her weeks-long absence from the station last week, video shows. ...“As I move forward, I want you to know I have learned from this and I will continue learning and I truly thank you for your support,” she said.
I don't want any of what I'm about to say to be taken in any way as condoning, excusing, justifying or apologizing for driving under the influence. Drunk driving destroys lives and communities and is a danger to us all.
But that doesn't mean we can't wholeheartedly stand with Feven Kay as she asks for our support. There but for the grace of God go any of us. We're all a bad reaction - what in my town we used to call "one bad ice cube" - away from from finding ourselves naked behind the wheel at 7:30 a.m. in a residential neighborhood. We can condemn Kay's actions while not vilifying her for what was an obvious mistake she is owning up to.
So here's hoping she gets the appropriate punishment from the justice system. That she finds the help she needs. And above all, that Fox 5 in Vegas continues to let her do her job. Because by all means she's obviously very good at it.
And you'd hate to see her career get derailed over one mistake, because it seems like she's got what it takes to really go places.
I still truly believe that local TV journalism can play an important role, and don't want to see a promising career ruined by one bad night. Thankfully, no one got hurt. As Feven herself so wisely put it, lessons have been learned. Let's all hope and pray the next time we drink, we don't strip off our clothes and get behind the wheel, regardless of the reasons. Remember, the next time you want to get drunk and naked, use a rideshare app. The life you save may be your own.
