Two high-ranking Secret Service agents accused of striking a White House security fence while being heavily intoxicated interfered with an active bomb investigation, The Washington Post reports. [2]

The agents may have even run over the suspicious package, which was dropped off by a woman about a half hour earlier.

At 10:25 p.m., a woman dropped off a package wrapped in a green shirt.

“I’m holding a [expletive] bomb,” she yelled, according to a government official with knowledge of the incident.

The woman sped off. Shortly before 11 p.m. the two Secret Service agents were returning from a work party and drove through the crime scene.

The agents have been reassigned.
