A Secret Service CAT team member walks toward his vehicle at Brussels Airport in BelgiumThe U.S. Secret Service is reassigning staff and studying changes to its rules on alcohol consumption after agents were sent home following a night of drinking on a recent trip to Europe ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit, a spokesman said on Tuesday. “Personnel are being re-assigned as a result of staffing rotations and as a result of assessments made after two recent incidents of misconduct,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said in a statement. The paper reported that another incident of misconduct occurred in south Florida in early March, when two officers suspected of drinking had a car accident shortly before the Obama family arrived in the area. The paper reported on Tuesday that Secret Service director Julia Pierson had reassigned nearly two dozen members of one of the service’s largest divisions as a result of the incidents.
