FAA Chief Babbitt Resigns Following Drunken Driving Arrest

WASHINGTON – Federal Aviation Administrator Randy Babbitt announced Tuesday that he has resigned following his arrest in Virginia on drunken-driving charges.

Babbitt said he did not want to “let anything cast a shadow on the outstanding work done 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by my colleagues at the FAA.” He said he submitted his resignation Tuesday, “and it has been accepted.”

The announcement comes after Babbitt, 65, 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. He was charged with driving while intoxicated.
