Drunk Secret Service Agents Investigated for Crashing Into White House Barrier
The Secret Service is investigating senior agents after a car crash at the White House this week.
There is an investigation into the actions of two agents, including a top member of President Obama’s protective detail. The probe is into what happened on March 4, when two agents drove a government vehicle into a White House security gate. At the time of the incident, the officers were investigating a suspicious package on The White House grounds.
The Washington Post reported that the agents had been drinking at a party for a retiring Secret Service spokesman. The newspaper reported that officers who were on duty at the White House wanted to arrest the agents and conduct sobriety tests, but they were told by a supervisor to let the two go home.
