Las Vegas news anchor Feven Kiflegiorgis, known by her on-air name as Feven Kay, has publicly apologized following her arrest on reckless driving charges.
The KVVU, Fox 5 anchor was taken into custody last month by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers after she was found passed out and naked in her Audi in a parking lot, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The television reporter issued an on-air apology this week, saying she wanted to be “transparent” with viewers about what happened.
“Many of you have noticed I’ve been off air for a few weeks… I was dealing with a private matter but I wanted to take this time to be transparent. Last month, I was arrested by Metro for driving under the influence. At the time of the arrest, I was inside of a parked vehicle in a Las Vegas neighborhood alone,” she explained.
She went on to say the charge has been reduced to misdemeanor reckless driving, and she will now pay a 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 added.
According to her bio on the Fox 5 website, Kiflegiorgis was born in East Africa and studied journalism at California State University, Northridge. She started her career at KTLA 5 in Los Angeles on the news assignment desk.
