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.”
