Jeff Dubay, a talk show host on KFAN (1130 AM) was arrested by Maplewood police about 10 p.m. Wednesday on suspicion of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony.
He has not been charged; police are investigating.
The arrest occurred after Dubay, driving west on state Hwy. 36, turned north onto English Street in Maplewood, Police Chief David Thomalla said Friday.
Because the case still is under investigation, he added, police were providing no details about why the vehicle was stopped, or what drug might be involved.
Dubay was booked into the Ramsey County jail, and later released pending further investigation. Police hope to complete the investigation next week, the chief said.
Dubay co-hosts the "PA and Dubay Show" with Paul Allen weekdays from 9 a.m.-noon. He also co-hosts Vikings post-game shows on KFAN and is on the air for Gophers hockey games on FSN North.
He has not been on KFAN since Wednesday and did not appear on FSN North this weekend, either.
