Secret Service agent on Harris detail involved in altercation before flight

A member of Vice President Harris’s Secret Service security detail was involved in an altercation with other agents on Monday and removed from their assignment, law enforcement officials said.

Harris was not affected by the incident, which took place at Joint Base Andrews while she was at the Naval Observatory, according to the Secret Service.

“At approximately 9 a.m. April 22, a U.S. Secret Service special agent supporting the Vice President’s departure from Joint Base Andrews began displaying behavior their colleagues found distressing,” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement. “The agent was removed from their assignment while medical personnel were summoned.”

The statement did not address media reports that the agent got into a fight with other agents and had to be handcuffed before being taken in for a medical assessment. The Washington Examiner first reported on the altercation.

Harris departed Joint Base Andrews later on Monday for Wisconsin without incident.

“The Vice President was at the Naval Observatory when this incident occurred and there was no impact on her departure from Joint Base Andrews,” Guglielmi said. “The U.S. Secret Service takes the safety and health of our employees very seriously. As this was a medical matter, we will not disclose any further details.”

A White House official declined to comment.
