Two WHO-TV reporters separately arrested for drunk driving

Posted on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014 at 8:36 pm    

Two WHO-TV news anchors were arrested in Iowa within one day of each other on drunk driving charges, an article by the New York Daily News stated on June 10.

On June 7, award-winning news reporter Sonya Heitshusen was stopped by police in Cedar Rapids and refused to submit to a field sobriety test. Heitshusen, 47, also avoided a breath test at the police station. The day before, news reporter Erik Wheater was also arrested for drunken driving. Police reportedly stopped the 25-year-old TV reporter’s vehicle after noticing a missing front license plate. Wheater was taken into custody after police noticed irregular behavior.
