Drunk Secret Service Agents Reportedly Crash Car into White House Barricade
Last week, two senior Secret Service agents were allegedly involved in a drunk driving accident. In a government vehicle. Colliding with a White House barricade. Don’t worry, Mr. President. You’re in good hands.
Right now, the Department of Homeland Security is heading up an investigation into the incident, which involves Mark Connolly, who is the second in command agent for Obama, and George Ogilvie, a senior supervisor. The incident allegedly occurred at around 10:30 pm on Wednesday, March 4th. According to reports, the two crashed a vehicle into the White House barrier following a retirement party for Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman, where the booze was freely flowing. As these things usually do, the accident happened not just in front of the police, but in the middle of a police investigation of a suspicious package. That’s right—the agents drove right through security tape of a crime scene before hitting the White House barricade.
Officers on duty who saw the accident wanted to arrest the agents and submit them to sobriety tests, but because justice for elected officials and their cohorts tends to mean “do as I say, not as I do,” the fellas’ supervisor, in more official words likely, told the police officers to chill out and sent the boys home. They have both been reassigned to non-supervisor, non-operational assignments during the investigation.
Unfortunately, there is no video currently circulating demonstrating the incident, but if there were, we have a feeling it would definitely find a home on our funniest DUI arrest videos list.
