A Secret Service agent who worked on Mike Pence’s detail was arrested for solicitation earlier this week after he was busted leaving a hotel after “meeting with a prostitute.”
According to CNN, the police responded to a call from the hotel manager after becoming suspicious of some activity in one of the hotel rooms. The secret service agent was then arrested and charged with solicitation.
At the time of the incident, which occurred late last week, the agent was off-duty and did not present himself in his official capacity, according to law enforcement sources.
A Secret Service spokesperson, speaking on the record, acknowledges “an alleged incident” occurred and says it involved an off-duty Secret Service employee and said that the matter is under investigation by the Office of Professional Responsibility to determine the facts.
According to the spokesperson, the employee was required to surrender his weapon and official gear and was placed on administrative leave. The employee’s security clearance and access to all Secret Service facilities has also been suspended.
“We are exploring the full range of disciplinary actions,” the Secret Service spokesperson said.
I guess not everyone working with Mike Pence avoids being alone with women that aren’t their wife.
