SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah news anchor has issued a tearful apology after being arrested recently for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.

KUTV anchor Shauna Lake Marshall said on the air on Tuesday that she is ashamed she got in her car after drinking alcohol and called it a “serious lapse in judgment.”

The Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office released booking information that states that on May 10, a highway patrol official pulled Marshall’s car over after noticing she was driving under the speed limit. The officer reported smelling alcohol inside the car and finding a plastic cup that had liquid in it that smelled like alcohol.

A message left for Marshall was not returned.

Marshall has been an anchor for KUTV for more than two decades.
