Jay Gray, NBC News Correspondent, Could Face Reassignment From Jerry Sandusky Case

Jay Gray, the NBC News correspondent who was arrested with a DUI in mid-December, may be reassigned from the Penn State sex abuse scandal he has been covering since early November. Former Penn State assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky, has been accused of over 50 counts of serial sexual abuse of minors. Some of the alleged incidents took place at Penn State facilities.

Gray attended a party thrown at the home of Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, on December 11th. Gray was reportedly one of many journalists there attempting to get an exclusive interview with the shamed former assistant football coach. Gray was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after leaving Amendola's party.

A source told The New York Post on Friday that Gray was removed from the Sandusky case after reports of his DUI surfaced. The Post also reported that another source told the paper that the network had not yet made a decision about Gray's future covering story.

According to TVNewser, Gray last appeared on MSNBC one day following his arrest.

NBC News' Michael Isikoff has also been covering the Penn State scandal. His reports have continued to appear on "Today," "Nightly News," and MSNBC.
