Obama & Secret Service Agents

Ridiculously, two secret service agents reportedly got drunk and crashed a car into a White House barricade last week. They were then let go, although officers on the scene reportedly wanted to arrest them.

The agents were identified by a Secret Service spokesperson as Mark Connolly and George Ogilvie. Connolly is the second in command for President Obama’s security detail.

Reportedly, on March 4, Connolly and Ogilvie were throwing them back at a colleague’s retirement party at a D.C. bar. After getting into a closed section of the White House grounds with their access badges, their vehicle crashed into a barricade. According to The Washington Post, after the crash, officers wanted to arrest them, but were thwarted.

The Post reports:

Officers on duty who witnessed the March 4 incident wanted to arrest the agents and conduct sobriety tests, according to a current and a former government official familiar with the incident. But the officers were ordered by a supervisor on duty that night to let the agents go home, said these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive internal matter.

This is but the latest in a series of high-profile snafus from the agency tasked with keeping the President safe, reports Buzzfeed:

On Sept. 16, 2014, Obama rode in an elevator with an armed security guard in violation of Secret Service policy. Later that same month, a man managed to scale the White House gates and make it inside the presidential residence before Secret Service agents stopped him.

Then, in October, the agency’s director, Julia Pierson, resigned. A report issued late last year also mentioned “systemic problems” and called for reform at the Secret Service.
