Fox fans were shocked to learn this week that Fox 4 reporter Mike Mason was arrested Friday night on suspicion of drunk driving.
Mason was arrested by the Fort Myers Police Department just before 10pm on Friday night. He was taken in on one misdemeanor count of DUI, but since his arrest report has not yet been released, few details are available at this time.
Mason, who has worked at Fox since May, posted bond and was released from the Lee County jail just after 1 p.m. Saturday. He released a brief statement saying that his charges are not valid and that he will be fighting for his innocence in court.
