Columbia Drug Ringleader Can’t Go Home


Harrison David, the esteemed ringleader of Columbia University’s drug ring, won’t be going home anytime soon. His father has released him into the custody of a family friend — a retired city correction officer in Florida — rather than let the 20-year-old come home. Apparently dad Dave David (nice name!) is livid and the new living arrangement is per his wishes; he “didn’t want him to be anywhere near the college campus or his friends.” His father thought Florida “was the best environment to place his son in, with a close family friend and a disciplined fellow,” said defense lawyer Matthew Myers. Harrison David faces up to ten years in prison for his role in the drug ring. [NYDN]
