A U.S. Secret Service Agent was arrested and charged with drunk driving last weekend in Iowa ahead of President Barack Obama's visit.
Deciorah, Iowa, police said Daniel Valencia, 40, of Washington, D.C., was pulled over by an officer for running a red light around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, reports The Des Moines Register.
The arresting officer said that Valencia reeked of alcohol, and he administered a field sobriety test that led him to decide that Valencia was too intoxicated to drive. No accident occurred and no one was injured.
Valencia refused to take a preliminary breath test and to give a breath sample at the jail, added the report. He was charged with operating while intoxicated and released from jail Monday, according to court documents.
Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed the identity of the agent and said he was off duty at the time, reports ABC News. The matter will be reviewed by the agency's Office of Professional Responsibility, Ogilvie added.
Ogilvie declined to say if Valencia continued to work with the president's security team after his arrest.
"We're not going to talk about where he is," Ogilvie said.
Obama visited Decorah Monday as part of his three-day Midwestern bus tour.
Decorah City Administrator Gerald Freund told The Hill that Secret Service agents resided in dormitories at the local Luther College for about a week while preparing for Obama's arrival.
