A pair of US Secret Service agents assigned to Joe Biden have been ordered to return to Washington after one was accused of assaulting a South Korean woman in a drunken rage.
The agent, along with another who was reportedly not investigated, are opn their way back and will face administrative leave.
“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” said Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesperson for the agency.
“The individuals will be immediately returned back to their post of duty and placed on administrative leave. There was no impact to the upcoming trip.”
The brawl took place outside the Grand Hyatt hotel in Seoul earlier this month.
According to Reuters, South Korean authorities did not wish to give details concerning the identities of the two agents.
The fight was first reported by TV Chosun, a local station.
