Walker, 61, was stopped at 12:35 a.m. near the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Ball Road and was arrested at 1:47 a.m., said Anaheim Lt. Tim Schmidt.

She was caught up in an on-air scandal in 1990 when she became romantically involved with co-anchor Jim Lampley while they were still married to other people. 

The two later married but were divorced in 2000.

Walker had disabled hands and became a high-profile advocate for disability awareness.
