The U.S. Secret Service is reassigning nearly two dozen members of its staff and exploring stricter rules on alcohol consumption after agents in charge of protecting President Obama on a recent trip to Europe were sent home after a night of drinking, a spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
"Personnel are being reassigned 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. "Director [Julia] Pierson maintains a zero-tolerance policy regarding incidents of misconduct and continues to evaluate the best human-capital practices and policies for the workforce."
