A federal inspector general’s report says the top FBI official in Los Angeles violated federal ethics regulations by holding a sensitive meeting of agency brass at a 2018 Los Angeles Dodgers playoff game.

The report says Paul Delacourt, the former assistant director in charge of the LA field office, and other high-ranking FBI special agents dined from a free, expansive buffet in the exclusive Stadium Club overlooking the field and surrounded by fans at the game.

Delacourt was transferred to FBI headquarters.

Delacourt’s attorney says the reassignment was not a disciplinary action and there are inaccuracies in the report, which he declined to specify. POLITICO first reported the news Tuesday.
