Former San Antonio Anchor Arrested on DWI Charge

By Mark Joyella 

Karen Gallagher, a former news anchor at San Antonio CBS affiliate KENS and ABC affiliate KSAT, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, reports the San Antonio Express-News.

Gallagher was part of one of San Antonio’s most successful news teams, anchoring alongside KSAT legend Bob Salter in the 1990’s.

Houston CBS-owned station KHOU reports this is Gallagher’s second arrest:

Gallagher was arrested in 2011 for prescription drug fraud.

According to her arrest affidavit for that arrest, Gallagher stole a prescription for Hydrocodone from a woman’s party.

The arrest warrant went on to say that Gallagher called in a refill on the prescription and could be seen on surveillance video picking up the refill at the pharmacy.
