Three Secret Service agents tasked with guarding President Barack Obama during his visit in the Netherlands were sent home with heads bowed, after a wild night of drinking while on duty, the Washington Post reported.
One of the agents was found passed out in the hotel hallway. The three were put on a plane back to the US and put on leave. They violated a rule under which guards are not allowed to consume alcohol within 10 hours of being on duty.
And it seems the late-night festivities took its toll on Obama as well: The US president was caught on camera nodding off during UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon’s opening address at the nuclear summit in The Hague Monday.
