Former Fox 5 anchor Amanda Davis was arrested on a suspended license Tuesday, according to Cobb County jail records.

Davis was still in the jail Tuesday evening on a $1,320 bond after being arrested about 3 p.m. near Cumberland Mall, according to records.

According to Cobb police, Davis was driving a blue Mercedes when she was pulled over by an officer for an expired tag who later discovered her licence was suspended.

Davis’ license suspension stemmed from her previous DUI arrests, police said.

Davis left Fox 5 following a November 2012 DUI arrest. She was arrested again in June 2015, a day before she was scheduled to make her debut on CBS46’s “Just A Minute.”

Davis was recently hired as a morning anchor for CBS46. She is scheduled to start Jan. 2.
