WASHINGTON -- One Secret Service agent has resigned, one was removed and another has retired in the wake of allegations that agents brought Colombian prostitutes to their hotel as they prepared for President Barack Obama's arrival in Cartagena, the Secret Service announced Wednesday.
Eight agents remain on administrative leave, according to FOX News Channel.
Eleven Secret Service agents
and 10 US service members had been implicated in the incident, which also allegedly involved up to 21 women.
The Secret Service had been conducting an internal investigation into the allegations.
The agents and service members reportedly visited a Cartagena brothel late last Wednesday and bragged to prostitutes that they were in the city to protect Obama, witnesses told ABC News. They later brought the women back to their hotel, where an argument broke out the following morning over the amount of money owed to one of the women.
The woman complained to police, who ultimately contacted US government officials.
