It started with a bullet inside a woman’s hotel room.

Ignacio Zamora Jr., a senior supervisor who oversees a dozen agents in the president’s detail, tried to force his way into the hotel room and retrieve the bullet, the Washington Post reports.

After launching that investigation, authorities also discovered that Zamora and another supervisor, Timothy Barraclough, sent sexually suggestive e-mails to a female subordinate, the Post reported.

The Secret Service declined to comment on the case.

“We have always maintained that the Secret Service has a professional and dedicated workforce,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said in a statement, referring to the Hay-Adams incident. “Periodically we have isolated incidents of misconduct, just like every organization does.”
