Corrections Officer Arrested

There's more trouble for employees at the Fayette County Detention Center.

Corrections officer Daniel Houlihan resigned on Tuesday after he was charged with promotion of contraband.

Investigators say he brought illegal drugs into the facility.

The charge against Houlihan is not connected to a federal investigation at the jail.

In that case, four other corrections employees and a former officer pleaded not guilty to allegations they beat inmates and tried to cover it up.

Houlihan first started at the detention center in 2005 but left after eight months. He returned to work there this past January.
