A Virginia judge has tossed out drunken driving charges against the former head of the Federal Aviation Administration.

Sixty-five-year-old Randy Babbitt resigned his post in December after news of his arrest became public.

At a trial Thursday, General District Judge Ian O’Flaherty tossed the case after seeing video of the left turn that Babbitt made that prompted an officer to pull him over. The judge said the officer had no good reason to make the stop and called it a mere “hunch.”
