Jerry Sandusky Case

NBC Correspondent Arrested

Courting Exclusive Interview

12/20/2011 9:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Gray
An NBC Correspondent was arrested last week after allegedly getting wasted at a party thrown by Jerry Sandusky's lawyer ... TMZ has learned. 

The Correspondent -- Jay Gray -- was invited by attorney Joe Amendola to watch the New York Giants game at his house on December 11.  Amendola invited reporters from other media outlets as well, all of whom were vying for an exclusive interview with Sandusky.

One source familiar with the party tells TMZ ... Gray got "really drunk" during the game.  Sometime after midnight, Gray left the party and began driving.  He was stopped by a Pennsylvania State Police officer for a traffic violation, which quickly turned into a DUI stop.   

According to police records obtained by TMZ, "He [Gray] had been drinking and was arrested for DUI."  The time of arrest was 1:45 AM on December 12. 

We left messages for Gray but did not hear back.  Ditto Amendola.

NBC had no comment.

Sandusky and his slimey attorney are a match made in heaven, but media people pimping themselves out to the attorney for an interview is equally slimey. Yuck!

Idiot. Also, it's disconcerting that the people who are supposed to be "objectively" reporting the news are cozying up with the subjects at alcohol fueled parties.

How is ANY part of that story appropriate?

This defense lawyer is a friggin joke and should really be looked at by the bar. Not that I would ever defend The Molester, but his counsel has been nothing but terrible from day one. ISs this the plan for a re-trial; shotty counsel?

I cant figure out who the fool in al lthis really is The Molester, the lawyer, the press or the justice system in the long run. Its a disgrace.

Very misleading headline, as per tabloid standard. He got arrested leaving -- not at the party. RIGHT? Oh that's right, then no one would click to read the story. I get it.

The headline for this article is extremely misleading. Basically, you have a story of a DUI. End of boring story.

Another idiot got a DUI - big deal - shouldn't the real story here be that Sandusky's lawyer is throwing a party with media people to see which will suck up hardest for an interview? I'd like to know more about that.
Typical slimeball attorney, making money on the side because of his client.
