A Las Vegas news anchor is speaking out following her arrest for driving under the influence last month.
As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Fox 5 Las Vegas morning weekday anchor and reporter Feven Kiflegiorgis, known as Feven Kay, was found asleep without clothes behind the wheel of her Audi at about 7:30 a.m. on March 20.
Kiflegiorgis told cops she did not remember how she got to the location where she was found.
Per a report, officers smelled alcohol on the journalist, but she declined to submit to blood testing.
After taking weeks off from work, Kiflegiorgis addressed the controversy during a recent Fox 5 segment.
“Many of you noticed I’ve been off-air for a few weeks,” Kiflegiorgis told viewers. “To all of you who have reached out, a sincere thank you for your concern.”
While she called the incident a “private matter,” she wanted to shed light on the event “to be transparent.”
After being arrested for driving under the influence, Kiflegiorgis said her charge has been reduced to misdemeanor reckless driving with a disregard for the safety of a person or property in the incident.
Per the Las Vegas Review-Journal, she was ordered on April 21 to pay a $1,000 fine and to attend driving school.
However, Kiflegiorgis stressed she was inside of a parked vehicle during the time of her arrest.
Despite what happened, she says she has learned from the event and hopes to move on with her life.
“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.
Per her LinkedIn profile, Kiflegiorgis started at Fox 5 in November 2018 and previously worked at KTLA in Los Angeles as an assignment editor and as a news desk intern at TMZ in 2012.
