Secret Service Agent Arrested After Passing Out Drunk on Brickell Avenue
Barack Obama may have left shortly after his address at the University of Miami yesterday, but not all of his Secret Service agents jetted off with him.
Miami Police found one of those agents, Aaron Francis Engler, passed out drunk this morning along Brickell Avenue and 7th Street.
According to CBS Miami, officers had responded to another call nearby when they noticed the unconscious man on the street corner. They approached Engler, but he became combative. They took him to the ground and put him in handcuffs. After going through his pockets they noticed his Secret Service badge.
Engler had come to Miami as part of the advance team ahead of Obama's visit. After he was done with his duties, he decided to go out and get drunk. He apparently imbibed a little bit too much.
He was supposed to leave this morning for another assignment, but instead found himself in police custody.
He was charged with two misdemeanors: disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence. He was then turned over to the Secret Service.
Well, at least there weren't hookers involved this time.
