Aipsasiamedia had the scoop Monday night with the news that longtime Bay Area news anchor Frank Somerville had been arrested after a family disturbance at his parents' Berkeley Hills home, according to police and community reports.

Other news outlets quickly jumped on the story after we published our article.

Somerville has fallen on tough times in recent years and repeatedly made Bay Area headlines in connection with those challenges.

The situation took another turn after Somerville posted bail: He was arrested again in Berkeley in the wee hours of the night, this time on a DUI, police said.

We reached Somerville by email Tuesday afternoon and he described what happened as a family matter. He also disputed that he was drunk Monday evening at the time of his initial arrest.
