'Passed-out' Secret Service Officer Arrested after Obama Trip

Friday, 12 October 2012 05:02 PM EDT

A Secret Service officer was arrested early Friday after being found passed out and apparently drunk on a Miami street corner several hours after President Barack Obama left Florida following a day trip to the city, police said.

A Miami police officer found Aaron Francis Engler around 7 a.m., lying near an intersection not far from a popular nightspot in downtown Miami. According to an arrest affidavit, Engler had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol. He was arrested on two misdemeanor counts after becoming combative with the arresting officer. Police say Engler started throwing his arms around while he was being searched and hit the officer in the chin.

Miami police say Engler has been released to members of the Secret Service's Miami field office.

The Secret Service in Washington said the case will be turned over to the agency's Office of Professional Responsibility.

A law enforcement official said Engler was assigned to the agency's uniformed division and was in Miami in a support role while the president was visiting. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the officer's job with the agency.

Obama was in Miami Thursday for a campaign rally at the University of Miami and an evening fundraiser.
