• Secret Service Agents Driving Drunk At White House?

    It’s safe to say that the Secret Service is having a bad year.

    They’ve already had a number of White House fence jumpers that they failed to stop, and now they being investigated for allegedly crashing into the White House security barricades after drinking at a late-night party.

    The incident allegedly occurred on the White House compound near 15th Street and Freedom Park as D.C. Police and Secret Service officers were trying to clear the scene due to a report of a suspicious package.

    Nearby on-duty police officers who witnessed the event wanted conduct field sobriety tests but were ordered by a supervisor to let the agents go home.

    The vehicle ran through security tape before hitting the barricades, which was setup during the investigation of the suspicious package.

    Agency Spokesman Brian Leary said, “If misconduct is identified, appropriate action will be taken based on established rules and regulations.” He added that the agency will fully cooperate with the investigation.

    The agents under investigation are Mark Connolly, the second-in-command on Obama’s detail, and George Ogilvie, a senior supervisor.

    The two men had been attending a party at a nearby bar for Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan, who is retiring.
