"Sir, I never said the word roach, roach implies I rolled something and smoked it, I would never be that stupid."

but he is stupid enough to call that dude back and spill his guts. What is the difference in a bud and a roach?
What in the hell is Joe Arena smoking to think he wasn't going to make the paper?

It is possible for many "roaches" to come from one "bud."

Anyone in this area know that The Inquisitor will post anything they think will sell papers... even if it isn't "real news." With that being said... anyone in the area, and especially at a station who has already had one on air personality on the cover of The Inquisitor, knows NOT to talk to Danny Lawler or any of his people.

Oh, and wasn't there someone else with him in the car? Who was it?

You've got to be smoking something pretty strong to agree to work for KTAL.

Simply being in BUFFALO, NY is much WORSE than any sentence that could have been handed down by any court.

Now that this story is making the rounds in Buffalo, I'm surprised that someone hasn't had this blog wiped from the internet. If he comes clean and does a nice warm and fuzzy story about the arrest, the public will forgive him. If not, he will forever be under suspicion.

I am appalled News 4 Buffalo would hire this guy. Shame on you.

Buffalo doesn't suck! And who cares if Joe Arena does drugs? It's his business! He's not hurting anyone!

You obviously have never been to Buffalo, you ignoramus. And big deal if he was smoking a joint. Who the hell hasn't?

Who said he was arrested for pot? This article doesn't mention what drug he was arrested for, it only says that the charges were "taken care of"... If he was arrested for cocaine is it okay also?

Getting arrested for either marijuana or cocaine? Not funny at all. Someone needs to show this guy how to act accordingly. I don't know any professional that is allowed to keep his job after drug charges. The media should be teaching our children not to do drugs, not how to get away with it.

I wonder if he was required to take a drug test for his position at News 4

You have got to be kidding? Where did CH 4 station managers dig this guy up from? They used to be a popular news source for many viewers. I used to be an avid fan. Not any more. Looks like they have another agenda now. Very disappointed.

I'm an African American male who applied for a position at News 4 and was denied because I had a prior arrest from 100 years ago. In this economy it's difficult to get a decent job and now today to find our how anti-semite News 4 is is very sad.

Does any one know if Joe Arena is making a statement or sending a press release today regarding the drug arrest?

Seriously people? Have you nothing better to do than spread rumors on the internet about someone's personal life? Maybe you all should get a job and stop worrying about other peoples' jobs and lives.

So it seems Joe Arena's and WIVB's actions are inexcusable and tragic. Both have been busted in a lapse of judgment pertaining to the past drug charges of WIVB's current employee Joe Arena. This is a dark day for all the people of the City of Buffalo and Suburbs. One could only hope WIVB does the right thing in this circumstance and pack Joe Arena onto the next flight out of Buffalo for good. Maybe then will the people of this community learn to trust and support WIVB again.

Why on earth should this reporter get fired?
This didnt happen " on the job"?

MR. Arena's conduct off the job is Mr. Arena's business. HE is not an elected public official, nor is he in some Public position that requires absolute clarity at all times-on and off the job--for some safety reason.

If Mr. Arena's "off hours" conduct does not impair his ability to do his job then it is nobodies business but his own.

Whose business is it anyway? You busybodies need to get a life.
