Late last week, a Secret Service agent on VP Mike Pence's security detail was arrested after soliciting a prostitute at a Maryland hotel.
CNN reports the agent was caught while exiting the establishment by police, who were called by the hotel's manager after suspicious activity in one of the rooms. The agent in question self-reported his arrest to the agency after he was charged with solicitation.
In a statement to ABC News, the S.S. said an investigation is ongoing:
"The Secret Service takes allegations of criminal activity very seriously. This matter is being investigated by our Office of Professional Responsibility to determine the facts … The employee was required to surrender their equipment 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."
We'll keep you updated as we learn more — but what do U make of all this??

Did you guys see this today??
Donald Trump invited the press to the White House Oval Office to watch him sign two executive orders. But after making a brief statement before the signing, the POTUS walked out of the room! Without signing!
Vice President Mike Pence tried to stop him to let him know he had forgotten to actually sign the documents, but you know Drumpf. It's not like he'd ever admit to being wrong.
Watch as he makes Pence go get the order and follow him to sign it somewhere else (below):
Well, until now.
Karen Pence's profile in the Washington Post revealed a lot about the duo, including a very interesting tidbit about the former Indiana governor's eating habits involving her.
According to the article, Drumpf's sidekick is so close to his "shield" Karen that he once told The Hill he won't eat alone with a woman unless it's Karen. Mike also said he won't attend events serving alcohol without her.
This was back in 2002, but considering it's been reported the controversial politician refers to his wife as "Mother," we can't say it's too surprising.
Still kind of creepy though, right??
Mike Pence Used A Private Email Account For Official Business As Governor Of Indiana — And Celebs Can't Handle It!
Well, now the Vice President is looking like a big ol' Washington hypocrite because it was revealed he used a private AOL account for official business when he was the Governor of Indiana!
And according to public records, the account was hacked and used to send fake emails asking for money from his address book!
*Excuse us while we cringe to the sound of ‘90s dial-up internet*
The Indianapolis Star reports that it obtained 29 pages of email records from current Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's office, which show Pence used the account to communicate with advisers about issues like homeland security in Indiana.
It's worth noting public officials ARE allowed to use personal email accounts under Indiana law, as long as they save any emails related to official political business in accordance with open records laws.
A Pence spokesperson said the VP complied with that requirement. Unlike Clinton's server, however, it took a lot less than
Vladimir Putin WikiLeaks to hack Pence's account.
The AOL account was compromised by a standard phishing attack in the late spring of 2016, which came to knowledge when everyone in his contacts list received emails that the governor and his wife were stranded
But now, his White House administration of paper dolls from the 1950s is already falling apart by the seams as some sketchy plans have been exposed.
On Monday, the White House's national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned over — surprise, surprise — illegal phone calls with Russia!
Top officials issued a public denial of reports that Flynn had discussed the sanctions imposed on the Kremlin by Barack Obama over Russia's efforts to influence the U.S. election in Trump's favor — but apparently, that's exactly what went down!
Flynn admitted to not only discussing sanctions with a Russian ambassador over the phone, but misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the contents of the conversation.
Though he was working for the Trump transition team at the time, Flynn was a private citizen when he made the questionable phone call, making it illegal to hash out government policy.
In a resignation letter released by the White House, the former adviser said:
Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, & More Celebs React With Anger & Disappointment To Betsy DeVos' Confirmation Vote As Education Secretary!
On Tuesday, the president's Secretary of Education pick Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate — and she BARELY made the cut!
Mike Pence cast the deciding vote for her nomination in a historic tie-breaker. It was the first time in history the Vice President was called to break a tie on a cabinet nomination.
And for good reason…
The Amway heiress has been blasted by teachers' unions and public education advocates alike for her lack of teaching experience, her dismantling of the Michigan school system with disastrous results, and her belief that public schools should have guns to fight off grizzly bear attacks.
Needless to say, critics had a lot to say about DeVos' appointment — celebs like Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, Piers Morgan, and Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui had some particularly scathing words for the new Education Secretary, Pence, and the cowardly Republican Congress!
