Feven who was taken off-air after the incident told police she didn’t remember how she stumbled out of her car
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: A Fox 5 Las Vegas’ morning weekday anchor was arrested in Las Vegas after she was found naked and passed out behind the wheel of her car. Feven Kiflegiorgis, whose on-air name at KVVU-TV is Feven Kay, was sentenced to a $1,000 fine on April 21 and was ordered to take driving lessons.
She was charged with reckless driving with a disregard for the safety of a person or property. On March 20, 2021, at 7:30 am, she was arrested after being found behind the wheel of her Audi, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. Her car was found in the travel lane on Matthew Avenue, near Paradise Road and East Windmill Lane, Las Vegas, Nevada, police said.
“She is a passionate storyteller, dedicated to being a voice for the voiceless, and has covered many national stories including 1 October and the deadly California wildfires,” her profile on the news station site says. “Extremely grateful for all the opportunities she’s been blessed with, Feven lives by the notion that ‘To whom much is given, much is required,’ and is committed to making a difference."
She told the police department that she didn’t remember how she got to Matthew Avenue and stumbled out of her car.
Officers reported a distinct smell of alcohol coming from her but she declined to submit her blood, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Kay returned to the channel last week to address the situation and thank viewers for their “support”.
“Many of you have noticed I’ve been off air for a few weeks,” she said in a statement aired on Fox 5. “To all of you who have reached out, a sincere thank you for your concern.”
Feven, who was born in East Africa, studied journalism at California State University, before bagging a job at KTLA in LA. Her bio on the Fox 5 website reads: “Outside of work Feven enjoys traveling, attending concerts, spending time with family and friends, and doing anything that involves laughing until her stomach hurts.”
Kay, who grew up in California, told viewers she was “dealing with a private matter” but wanted to take the opportunity “to be transparent”. “Last month I was arrested, by Metro, for driving under the influence,” she continued. “At the time of the arrest, I was inside of a parked vehicle in a Las Vegas neighborhood alone.” “That charge has since been reduced to misdemeanor reckless driving,” Kay said. “As I move forward, I want you to know I have learned from this and I will continue learning, and I truly thank you for your support,” she added. The news anchor is working with Fox News since November 2018, according to her LinkedIn page.
