From The Wall Street Journal:
Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (Chief Marketing and Development Officer) Mark Crumpacker pleaded guilty on Friday to a misdemeanor that will be dismissed next year if he submits to drug testing and undergoes treatment.
Prosecutors in New York said the burrito chain’s chief creative and development officer participated in a cocaine drug ring. He pleaded guilty to a single count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.
Mr. Crumpacker, who returned to Chipotle in September after less than three months on leave, told investors in October that he had learned from his mistakes. “I’m sorry I caused a distraction for the company,” he said.
