What was going on?!?
It has just been reported that two of President Biden’s secret service agents were sent home after one of them who was very drunk attacked another person while in South Korea one day before President Biden was set to arrive in Seoul.
According to Reuters, one police official in the Yongsan district said that one of the agents was arrested after he got into a fist fight with someone over a dispute over a taxi.
A U.S. official however claimed that no one was arrested and only one secret service agent was simply investigated over what had happened.
Anthony Guglielmi who is a spokesperson for the Secret Service explained, “The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations.”
“The individuals will be immediately returned back to their post of duty and placed on administrative leave. There was no impact to the upcoming trip.”
The attack happened outside of the Grand Hyatt hotel where President Biden was expected to arrive and stay at.
