A Secret Service employee working in Israel before President Biden’s visit there this week was sent home late Monday after being briefly arrested by the Israeli police in what the U.S. agency called “a physical encounter,” a spokesman for the Secret Service said on Wednesday.

Officials from the agency did not give details but stated that the allegations did not include a sexual assault. The employee was “briefly detained and questioned by Israeli police, who released him without charges,” said Steven Kopek, a spokesman for the Secret Service.

Officials stated that the employee is now back in America and has had access the Secret Service facilities and systems during an investigation into this incident. Officials stated that this was standard procedure in such cases.

This is just the latest case in a long line of high-profile incidents involving Secret Service agents acting badly during presidential visits.
