Moritz Loew joined The Huffington Post just three months ago, but he’s already been fired. According to Ad Age, Loew was dismissed after a background check turned up an arrest warrant for failing to appear in court regarding a DWI he received in 2003.
Loew has since dealt with the charge, but it didn’t matter. ”Recent information has indicated that Moritz’s hiring did not meet AOL requirements,” a spokesperson told Ad Age.
Loew said he he didn’t realize he had an outstanding warrant, but called it “a stupid mistake.”
