Former TV Anchor Jailed on Drug Charges

Source: KSLA A judge has ordered former television news anchor Shari Warren to enter a drug rehab program. Bossier Parish sheriff's deputies arrested Warren April 1st after a traffic stop. They charged her with having an open container, improper lane change, no driver's license, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Sheriff's spokesman Ed Baswell says the deputy found the drug, librium, inside the vehicle Warran was driving. Librium is a narcotic usually prescribed to treat anxiety.

Warren remains in jail. This latest arrest marks the third arrest in recent months. Other charges against her include forgery, issuing worthless checks, and another drug possession charge. According to a spokeswoman for the Bossier Parish District Attorney's Office, all of the charges against Warren were still pending as of April 12, 2005. Warren is former news anchor at KSLA-TV as well as KTBS-TV.

Whatever happened to Shari Warren? Seems like there was a few news stories about her arrest on drug use and writing hot checks. Is she still around Shreveport? Any 411 on what she's doing these days?

The latest I could find out about Shari is from 2010...she'd been charged with felony fraud at some bank. I'd also read that she had become a consultant at Isle of Capri Casino, but I'm not sure of the timeline in relation to that latest charge. I went to college at NLU(ULM)w/Shari. I was her suite-mate in '79. All this news has broken my heart. She had so much going for her....
