Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea
You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.
For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.
This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.
Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.
The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.Trending:
Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.
There could be more trouble coming, as well.
In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.
One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.
The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.
“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”
There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
