According to a Fairfax police spokesman, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Jerome Randolph Babbitt, was observed driving a vehicle on the wrong side of the road, just two blocks from a police station in Fairfax, VA, on Saturday night before being arrested and later charged with DUI.  Reports indicate that Mr. Babbitt has since requested and been granted an immediate leave of absence from the FAA.
