Longtime Salt Lake City anchor Shauna Lake Marshall is facing DUI charges, the station announced.

KUTV news anchor, Shauna Lake was pulled over last night for driving under the influence,” said Lake’s co-anchor, Mark Koelbel, who got teary eyed while delivering the news during Wednesday night’s 10 p.m. newscast.

“Following a field sobriety test Shauna was arrested and given a citation.  Formal charges are pending. The results of a blood test will take two to three weeks,” Koelbel explained


Lake did not appear on the air last night.

According to a report in the Deseret News, Lake was pulled over early Wednesday morning. The report says she was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, having an open container in a vehicle on a highway, using plates registered to another car and failing to register or driving with an expired registration

KUTV news director Mike Garber declined to comment to the newspaper which has a full recap of her arrest.

According to Lake’s bio, she joined the CBS-affiliate in 1994 as an anchor for the station’s morning news show. She began her broadcasting career at BYU and is the mother of two sons.
