President Obama’s Secret Service Agents Sent Home After Drunken Night
Secret Service agents apparently can’t keep their bad habits a secret.
A night of blowing off steam from the job went may have gotten carried away this weekend when President Obama’s Secret Service agents reportedly got really drunk while on duty.
Sources told NBC News that one agent was found passed out in a hotel hallway Sunday morning (March 23) by hotel staff who contacted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands.
The Washington Post also reports that the Secret Service agency “did send three employees home for disciplinary reasons.” These “reasons” refer to a new rule that prevents agents from drinking alcohol within 10 hours of duty.
This restriction was made after a similar incident took place in Cambodia in April of 2012 when 12 agents drunkenly brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms before the President touched down.
