An anchor at KTNV-TV, Channel 13 was arrested Thursday afternoon after she was suspected of drunken driving, the station reported Friday afternoon.
“We have some news to share with you about KTNV anchor Rikki Cheese,” the station’s report begins.
Cheese is facing one misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence, the station reported. It’s unclear what time she was arrested or where.
This was her second DUI arrest. The first one happened in February 2009, when National Park Service rangers arrested Cheese at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
At the time, Cheese was charged with driving under the influence, having a blood-alcohol content level over the legal limit of 0.08 percent, having an open container in a vehicle, unsafe operation of a motor vehicle and failure to wear a seat belt, the Review-Journal previously reported.
Cheese anchors the station’s live newscast at 3 p.m. and reports for other newscasts, according to a biography on the station’s website. She has worked at the station since 2003.
“In her time off she enjoys spending time with family, friends and several very large American Akitas,” the biography reads.
