Secret Service disserves again

Posted: October 14, 2012

MIAMI - In the latest embarrassing spectacle for the Secret Service, one of its officers was found passed out and apparently drunk on a Miami street corner less than 12 hours after President Obama left the city following a campaign trip, Miami police said.

Aaron Francis Engler, an officer with the storied agency's uniformed division, was not on duty when he was found unresponsive on a sidewalk near a popular nightlife area in downtown Miami about 7 a.m. Engler was in Miami in a support role for Obama's trip.

A Secret Service spokesman said the agency's Office of Professional Responsibility will investigate the incident.

In April, 13 officers and agents were implicated in a prostitution scandal in Cartagena, Colombia, in advance of Obama's arrival for a South American summit.
