Just When You Thought Penn State Tragedy Couldn't Get Any More Slimy

Proving that there is no level too low to which the mainstream media won't stoop, the NBC reporter who is covering the Penn State child molestation case was arrested for drunk driving after attending a party at the home of Jerry Sandusky's lawyer. It seems that the reporter, Jay Gray, attended the party in hopes of convincing Sandusky's lawyer to choose NBC for an exclusive interview with the football coach who is accused of molesting several young boys.

Jay Gray, the NBC News reporter covering the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal in State College, Pennsylvania, was arrested on drunk driving charges after he attended a drunken football-watching party at Sandusky's lawyer's house, reports say.

The Pennsylvania State Police arrested Gray just before 2am December 12 during a traffic stop.

He was allegedly at the home of Joe Amendola, the eccentric lawyer defending Sandusky against allegations he molested 10 boys over the course of several years.

NBC News correspondent Jay Gray was reportedly at a party at Jerry Sandusky's lawyer's house. According to TMZ, Mr Amendola invited Gray and several other reporters over to his house to watch the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game.

The reporters, reportedly, were all vying for exclusive interviews with Sandusky, who has only further raised public suspicions about himself in two awkward media appearances, says TMZ.

Sandusky, the former defensive coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions football team, rocked the nation when he was arrested and accused of molesting 10 boys, most of whom he met through his charity, the Second Mile.

During the party at Mr Amendola's State College house, TMZ claims Gray got 'really drunk.' Around midnight, he got in his car to drive back to his hotel and was stopped by police.

He was released on bail after his arrest.

NBC has not commented on the case and neither has Gray.

Gray is a national correspondent for the network who has covered stories across the country.

According to a report in the Harrisburg Patriot-News, Mr Amendola wants Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, to appear in an exclusive network interview.

Gray and the other reporters were likely trying to win favors to get them the air time, TMZ says.
