Feven Kay Kiflegiorgis, a news anchor for Fox 5 Las Vegas, was found naked and passed out behind the wheel of a car last month.

The Fox 5 Las Vegas morning weekday anchor made news headlines herself when she was found passed out behind the wheel of her Audi at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 20.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Kiflegiorgis, known professionally as Feven Kay, told cops she couldn't remember how she got to the location where she was found.

The officer states the nude driver smelt of alcohol and she seemed disoriented. Kiflegiorgis declined to submit to a blood alcohol test, according to the police report.

Kiflegiorgis, a native of East Africa, was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving with a disregard for the safety of a person or property.

Kiflegiorgis appeared in court on April 21 and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and to attend driving school, according to the NY Post.

Kiflegiorgis took a leave of absence before returning to the news desk. She told viewers the incident was a "private matter," but she wanted to be "transparent."

"Many of you noticed I've been off air for a few weeks," Kiflegiorgis said. "To all of you who have reached out, a sincere thank you for your concern.

"Last month, I was arrested by Metro for driving under the influence," she sighed. "At the time of the arrest, I was inside of a parking vehicle in a Las Vegas neighborhood alone. That charge has since been reduced to misdemeanor reckless driving for which I will pay fine and take classes.

"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.

The female suspect in a crash that killed an NYPD cop had a blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit.

Jessica Beauvais, 32, of Long Island, said, "I'm sorry," as she was escorted out of the 107th Precinct in Queens on Tuesday.

"I'm sorry that I hit him and now he's dead," she said, referring to Officer Anastasios Tsakos who died early Tuesday.

Beauvais told reporters she was coming from the studio when she hit Tsakos. "I did a podcast," she sobbed as she was placed inside a police vehicle.

Tsakos, 43, had just left the scene of an earlier accident on the Long Island expressway when she hit his car head-on with her 2013 Volkswagen.

Beauvais' podcast on Facebook Monday night included anti-police rants and showed her drinking from a small plastic cup, according to the NY Post.

She is charged with vehicular manslaughter, reckless endangerment, leaving an accident resulting in death, fleeing the scene of an accident, and driving while intoxicated.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired Chicago Police Dept. Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson for "lying" about falling asleep in his car. Lightfoot announced Johnson's termination during a press conference on Monday, Dec. 2.

Johnson, who was promoted to Superintendent in 2016, had been on the police force for 31 years.

According to published reports, Johnson was found sleeping at the wheel of his car around 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 17. He told police that he was on his way home after dining with friends and he pulled over because he felt tired.

Lightfoot said he later told her that he'd had a "few drinks" at dinner that night and that the alcohol reacted with medication he had taken.

She said surveillance footage proved Johnson had been deliberately misleading with investigators and he lied about where he'd been and what he had been doing.

The mayor said she would not reveal where he had been to "protect his wife and children." She said his behavior was "unbecoming" of his position. Johnson and his wife, Junior Officer Lt. Nakia Fenner, 43, (pictured right) were married in 2017.

In early November Johnson announced his intention to retire at the end of the year during a news conference with the mayor at police headquarters.

But sources say Lightfoot, a Democrat who is openly homosexual, had it in for Johnson and his police department after they investigated openly homosexual Empire actor Jussie Smollet for lying about a racial attack.

The girlfriend of Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith was hit by a car on the side of a highway after Smith pulled over to fix a flat tire on his Lamborghini.

Petara Cordero, 26, died on Wednesday - just two weeks after giving birth to the couple's first child, a baby girl.

Smith and Cordero were involved in a minor car crash after a flat tire caused the Lambo to spin out of control early Wednesday morning.

Smith pulled over to fix the flat tire, and Cordero stepped out of the vehicle on the side of the road.

She was struck and killed by another car after she walked into the opposite lane from the median and into oncoming traffic on the I-90 West in Cleveland, according to the Daily Mail UK.

Police say the driver, a 47-year-old woman driving a Mazda in oncoming traffic, admitted she had been drinking before she hit Cordero.

Cordero was taken to Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

She and Smith recently celebrated the birth of their daughter, Haven Harris Smith, just two weeks ago.

Cleveland police said no charges have been filed against the driver and toxicology reports are pending.
