On Monday, Doreen Gentzler spoke with Leon Harris on NBC4 about his sobriety, as well as the time he recently spent in jail after his DUI conviction earlier this year. Harris told that Gentzler that he was in worse shape than he thought at the time and that he could have killed someone while driving impaired, “I thought after having about four glasses of wine I was good.. I wasn’t, nobody is going to be good after that.” Harris said he now spends three hours a day in therapy talking to other people in recovery.
According to WTOP, Harris spent 10 days in jail and is on three years of supervised probation. Harris returns to the anchor desk on tonight’s 6PM newscast. You can watch the full video below courtesy of the @nbcwashington Twitter:
