WUSA reporter Michael Quander is facing DUI charges.

According to the station’s website, Maryland State Police stopped Quander early Monday morning. He was driving in the wrong direction along a street in Prince County.

“In our newscasts we often report on DUIs, and this case is no different. It’s a serious matter and we’re addressing all aspects of the incident,” said WUSA general manager Richard Dyer.

The station reported the story Friday night. Quander’s arrest report showed he was given a breathalyzer test and blew over the legal limit.

He was arrested, charged and released.

TVSpy reported when Quander made the move to Washington D.C. from Memphis last year.
