Sam Donaldson may be known for reporting information, but on Dec. 1 he made some news of his own.

The ABC News veteran, 78, was arrested around 8 p.m. on Dec. 1 for driving under the influence in Lewes, Del., Police Chief Jeffrey Horvath confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE.

Cooperating with authorities by taking an Intoxilyzer test, the journalist was then released to an adult pending an appearance in court.

Donaldson was initially pulled over for a traffic violation, but after further investigation, it was apparent he had been drinking.
