A U.S. Secret Service agent was arrested for disorderly intoxication in Miami early Friday morning. Miami police found the agent passed out on the sidewalk.
The incident occurred just a short while after President Obama left South Florida, where he attended a rally at the University of Miami.
Miami police officers were in the area for an unrelated call when they came across Aaron Francis Engler sleeping on the sidewalk. It was only then when the officers searched through his pockets that they discovered his Secret Service identification.
The arrest report describes Engler having bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol, according to the Associated Press.
Engler even resisted arrest by tensing his arms and arguing with officers. He was upset because he was supposed to leave Miami for another assignment.
This is the just latest blow to the agency, including the prostitution scandal in Colombia over the summer.
