The agency says the agent was off duty at the time of his arrest.
A Secret Service agent assigned to Vice President Mike Pence's detail has been suspended after being arrested last week for consorting with a prostitute at a Maryland Hotel. The agents hit the clubs of Cartagena for a night of drinking that ended with them bringing women back to their hotel rooms.
The Secret Service takes legal violations "very seriously", a spokesman said in a statement.
In the meantime, the Office of Professional Responsibility has launched an investigation into the matter, the representative added.
"We are exploring a full range of disciplinary action", a spokesman for the US Secret Service told the Washington Post. Because the room booked was that of an alleged sex worker, police went ahead and arrested the secret service agent.
Conditions of the agent's leave reportedly include surrendering his service weapon and other government gear as well as immediately losing his government clearance and Secret Service access to various government and other locations and property. About a dozen agents were sent home from the trip for misconduct.
One embarrassing report after another, the Secret Service continues to prove that if any federal agency needs revamping, it's at the top of the list.
Then-Director Mark Sullivan apologized for the scandal but called it an anomaly. Agents and officers can not drink alcohol when stationed at the hotel of the public official they are assigned to protect.
