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.

Looks like everything connected to Jerry Sandusky turns to mud. What an idiot Gray is--he should either be demoted or fired!

There's a problem here    

I wouldn't be surprised if it was billed as a father/son party.

He is a reporter for NBC, I am sure they knew he was there. I doubt they knew he got arrested for a DUI. It's sad that this is in the news now, because he will probably be fired like the rest of the reporters who make the news. I guess it could be karma for going to the party with an alleged child rapist.

We know Jay from reporting in the Dallas Fort Worth area. He has always been professional. There is no story here. He got drunk and drove and got arrested. Happens to many.

10 TO 1 Joe Amendola called the drunk driving tip himself and probably wasn't smart enough to hide his tracks.

When Jay Gray's attorney subpoenas the 911 call and demands a trial by jury, he'll walk.

Not only that, I'll bet Joe Amendola has called in DUI tips on other party guests before.

Wouldn't take too long too much work to track that down.

Subpoena every 911 call ever made from every phone Joe A ever owned and I'll bet you find some interesting stuff.

HELLO! Conflict of interest, anyone? If NBC had ANY principles as an objective news organization, they'd fire this POS immediately...

Which other reporters were at the party with Amendola? Sandusky is a total lowlife, but the media is getting down in the mud with him and his lawyers.

What does that Liaryer have to party about ? His client is going away for a long , long time,

no matter how the news agencies spin it. It is disconcerting to say the least that our 'NEWS'

people are corrupted; that they sell us down the river for few cheap drinks, nice.

What else do you expect from an NBC employee? Low-down lamestreamers, every one.

Nothing like being an independent, objective journalist. Disgraceful.

So, dumbass, was it worth it? If you drink, do not drive. Frankly, I couldn't possibly care any less if you want to drink and drive then kill yourself doing it, but there are innocent people who have NO CHOICE out there, because YOU chose to drink and drive. I WISH you would get jail time, but knowing how EXCUSABLE drunk driving seems to be, you will get a slap on the wrist. You disgusting piece of work, get some help.
