MORE SECRET SERVICE PROBLEMS: Driver in road rage ID’d as Secret Service agent.
The license plate on a black Dodge Charger recorded speeding erratically on Interstate 77 in Charlotte and using blue lights to pull over a vehicle was assigned to a Secret Service agent, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. Secret Service agency.
Special Agent in Charge, Russ Nelson, of the Secret Service office in Charlotte said, “The employee was working on duty in an official capacity in a US Secret Service vehicle at the time of the incident.”
Nelson said they’re investigating the incident and have placed the agent on paid leave until the issue is resolved.
Really, I’m beginning to have doubts about their professionalism. But three cheers for cellphone video. But why don’t we know the agent’s name?
