Ex-Anglo Irish boss David Drumm arrested in United States

By Dominic Harris

The former head of rogue lender Anglo Irish Bank, who authorities in Ireland want to quiz over the collapse of the bank, has been arrested in America.

David Drumm (48) was detained by US Marshals in Massachusetts and is being held in custody ahead of an extradition hearing tomorrow, the Irish Times said.

Ireland has long-sought the extradition of Mr Drumm after he failed to be declared bankrupt when a US court ruled the ex-banker was "not remotely credible".

He moved to Massachusetts in 2009, six months after resigning as chief executive of the now defunct bank, which was central to Dublin's boom-to-bust saga.
