A former Tulsa television news anchor has been formally charged with unlawful possession of methamphetamine, a felony, after getting arrested just after midnight on Monday.
The police report alleges an officer saw a vehicle with an expired tag driving near 41st and Harvard and pulled the vehicle over. The officer says the driver, former KTUL anchor Jerry Giordano, did not have insurance for the vehicle.
The officer says he issued a citation for not having insurance and called Storey Wrecker to impound the vehicle. According to the report the officer conducted a search of the vehicle and found a baggie with a dirty crystalline substance in the driver seat, a baggie with a white substance in the driver door panel and a large rock of a crystalline substance in the door handled of the vehicle.
Police arrested Giordano on possession of a controlled dangerous substance after the item in one of the baggies tested positive for meth. Giordano was previously arrested for drunk driving in 2008.
