Fox 4 reporter Mike Mason was arrested Friday night on suspicion of drunk driving.

The Fort Myers Police Department arrested Mason just before 10 p.m. Friday night.  He was taken into custody on one misdemeanor count of DUI, but no other details are available as the full arrest report has not been released.

Fox 4 management says it will review the details in the case, but does not comment on personnel matters.

Mason has worked for Fox 4 since May.  He posted bond and was released from the Lee County jail just after 1 p.m. Saturday.  In a statement, he says the arrest is not valid and he plans to fight the case in court.
