(Washington, DC) -- Attorney General Eric Holder is resting at home after being treated for an elevated heart rate. Holder was taken to a Washington, DC hospital this morning after feeling lightheaded and experiencing shortness of breath during a staff meeting at the Justice Department. A spokeswoman said Holder underwent extensive tests which ruled out the possibility of a heart attack. The 63-year old Holder has been the nation's chief law enforcement official since the start of the Obama administration in early 2009.
