Channel 7 news chief gets part-time jail

From the ABC:

Channel Seven’s head of news and current affairs, Peter Meakin, has been sentenced to up to 18 months’ periodic detention for drink-driving and dangerous driving.

I thought it was for producing Today Tonight.

update:

Ms Culver said Meakin accelerated past a random breath testing site at North Narrabeen when police signalled him to pull over.

He forced two police officers off the road in a bid to avoid being tested, she said.
