Update: FAA Chief Resigns Over Drunk Driving Incident


WASHINGTON (The Blaze/AP) -- Randy Babbitt says he will resign as head of the Federal Aviation Administration following his arrest over the weekend on charges of drunken driving.

Babbitt said in a statement Tuesday that he didn't want to allow anything to "cast a shadow" on the work done by his colleagues at the FAA.

The 65-year-old Babbitt was arrested Saturday night in Fairfax City, Va., by a patrolman who said the FAA administrator was driving on the wrong side of the road.


Just yesterday The Blaze reported that Babbitt had been placed on administrative leave pending a review of his employment by the FAA.
