Bureau of Prisons Director Harley Lappin Busted for Drunk Driving
WASHINGTON — Harley Lappin, the director of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, who oversees 116 institutions and about 210,000 convicts, faces drunk driving charges stemming from a February incident in Annapolis, Md., the website Main Justice reported.
Lappin, who announced his resignation last week, told the staff about the drunk driving incident, Main Justice’s Andrew Ramonas reported.
The website reported that he faces three charges related to drunk driving. The incident happened on Saturday, Feb. 26 around 4 a.m., less than a half mile from his home, the website reported.
Last Friday, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr. issued a statement about the retirement of Lappin:
“During my tenure as both Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, it has been a privilege to work closely with Director Harley Lappin.
“For more than a quarter of a century, including eight years as Director, his service to the Bureau of Prisons has helped improve public safety, strengthen our corrections systems, and advance the Justice Department’s most critical goals.”
