WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Eric Holder has been discharged from a Washington hospital, where he spent several hours today after experiencing faintness and shortness of breath at work.

Officials say he was taken to the hospital as a precaution after feeling the symptoms during a regular morning meeting with senior staff. A department statement described him as alert and communicating with his doctors during his hospital stay.

His office says Holder was discharged later in the day and sent home to rest.

Holder, who is a trim 63-year-old, is known inside the Justice Department for bypassing the elevator and taking the stairs at a brisk pace to reach his 5th-floor office. He also plays basketball.

The White House says President Barack Obama was notified and wished Holder a “speedy recovery.”
