A former Tulsa TV anchor on Friday was slapped with felony drug charges in Tulsa County District Court.
Jerry Giordano, listed in court records as Gerald Giordano, is a former anchor and reporter for ABC-affiliate KTUL in Tulsa. He was officially charged with unlawful possession of a controlled drug (methamphetamine), which can carry a sentence of up to five years in the state penitentiary and/or a $5,000 fine.
Giordano was arrested in midtown late Sunday after police say a traffic stop revealed he had no insurance on his truck, and officers found a "dirty crystalline substance" in a door panel and a "large rock of crystalline substance" in the door handle.
He was booked into the Tulsa County jail and released after posting $2,500 bond.
In 2008, Giordano entered a blind plea on a DUI charge.
He worked for KTUL for 16 years and left in 2010. According to his LinkedIn profile, he is a realtor with Coldwell Banker Select.
