Lisa Edgar, former state parks director and Public Service Commissioner, was charged Sunday with a drunk-driving hit and run, Leon County booking records show.
A request for her arrest report is pending.
In February, Edgar resigned as director of the Florida Park Service after less than two months on the job, citing “an immediate family emergency.”
Edgar was also a three-term member of the state’s Public Service Commission, the panel that regulates the state’s investor-owned utilities, and was a deputy secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection.
Then-Gov. Jeb Bush first appointed her to the PSC in January 2005. Last year, Edgar decided not to seek another term on the PSC. She was replaced by water-use engineer Donald Polmann of Dunedin.
She switched jobs around the first of the year, saying she wanted to further use her “regulatory and governmental experience.”
