She was booked and released.

Walker was a respected fixture on L.A. television and worked at KCBS-TV Channel 2 in the 1980s and '90s.

Anaheim police told the Orange County Register that Walker could not produce a driver's license and looked "disheveled." There was a pitbull in her car, and the dog was handed over to animal control officers, officals added.

She was once married to co-anchor Jim Lampley.

Walker had disabled hands and became a high-profile advocate for her condition, known as ectrodactyly.
