But dozens of entries contained in the newly released complaint log do refer specifically to agency employees.
In May 2010, for instance, officials opened an investigation over a report that a special agent serving on the “Clinton Protective Detail” had been arrested in 2009 for driving while intoxicated in a personal vehicle during off-duty hours. The documents stated that the agent submitted to a Breathalyzer test and remained on full duty while awaiting a court appearance.
In a separate case, a special agent was arrested in July 2006 for “resisting arrest, public intoxication and reckless damage,” records show. A year later, another officer in the Secret Service’s White House branch was arrested for driving under the influence.
One log entry said an employee was arrested for driving while intoxicated after hitting a telephone pole, while another described the arrest of a special agent by the Department of Wildlife Services in an unnamed jurisdiction for “operating a watercraft while intoxicated and reckless operation of a watercraft.”
In 2009, a special agent was arrested for driving under the influence after a minor traffic accident with another driver, who also was arrested on the same charge. In 2005, in an incident that did not result in criminal charges, an employee who was assigned “as the detail leader for the president of the Dominican Republic” was relieved from duty “after reporting for work apparently under the influence of alcohol,” records show.
Not all of the arrests were alcohol-related. Other entries described arrests involving assault, domestic violence, disorderly conduct and burglary.
