CNN anchor Richard Quest arrested for drug possession

CNN anchor Richard Quest arrested for drug possession CNN anchor/reporter Richard Quest was arrested on Friday, after police found a small bag of methamphetamine in his pocket. According to reports, Richard Quest was stopped by the NYPD in Central Park for violating the park curfew on Friday and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, after the cops found a small quantity of meth in his pocket. The Central Park curfew starts at 1:00 am, while Quest was stopped in the park at around 3:30 am and the drugs were discovered in the subsequent standard search.

 A New York judge ordered Richard Quest, a CNN anchor and business reporter, to undergo six months of counseling and in exchange the judge promised to drop the charge if the therapy is successful. The agreement between the parties came after Quest was charged with a misdemeanor possession of methamphetamine and an extra charge of loitering for breaking the curfew. Richard Quest is a quite popular face to the viewers of CNN International, where he hosts "CNN Business Traveler", as well as "Quest", his own feature program.
