ICYMI: Biden’s Secret Service Agents Sent Home After Drunken Brawl

The ennui of the White House has long been a sort of muse for writers and filmmakers and actors and actresses.  We’ve all watched a fictional president do their fictional work in someone’s idea of what 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is like.  Whether it’s the movie Dave or the television series House of Cards, we’ve long imbued some of our own reverence for the placed upon our understanding of it.

And these characterizations can range from brutish to brutally funny, and from chaotic to nonchalant.

When we do get a glimpse into the inner workings of the White House, it can be shocking.  For instance, we often think of the Secret Service as an elite force of highly trained law enforcement officers who are in a class of their own.

But sometimes it seems as though they’re nothing more than overpaid TSA agents with a superiority complex.

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.

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.

This is far from the first time that the Secret Service has received a bit of bad publicity, but at least this one didn’t involved a slew of Colombian prostitutes.
