Acting director of the National Park Service Paul Daniel Smith has apologized to employees for "an inappropriate manner in a public hallway," per CNN.

The details: The apology follows a March Washington Post report that said Smith grabbed his genitals and made a gesture in front of other employees in the hallway of his agency’s headquarters this year. The Interior Department’s internal watchdog had opened a probe after the matter was reported. The results of the investigation will be made public this month, a department spokesperson told CNN.
