"Fox News, which first reported the fight, described it as one of at least three altercations on Nantucket involving Secret Service agents and other members of the security teams that accompanied the president or vice president on vacations to the islands. Fox reported earlier in the week that some Martha’s Vineyard residents said Secret Service agents caroused and threw wild parties when the president and his family vacationed on the island....

"US releases allegations against Secret Service agents; Details raise questions about agency culture" by Alicia A. Caldwell | Associated Press, June 16, 2012
WASHINGTON - The US government has revealed details of serious allegations against Secret Service agents and officers since 2004, including claims of involvement with prostitutes, leaking sensitive information, publishing pornography, sexual assault, illegal wiretaps, improper use of weapons, and drunken behavior.

In 2008, an on-duty uniform-division officer was arrested in a Washington prostitution sting. The officer, who was driving a marked Secret Service vehicle at the time, was placed on administrative leave, the records show. Sullivan said during the May hearing that the officer was later fired.
If they aren't running patsy plots its prostitution stings.
Some of the allegations were obviously spurious, such as a complaint in August 2010 that a Secret Service agent had performed experiments and implanted stimulators in a citizen’s brain. The list also included dozens of complaints about fraudulent e-mails that circulate widely on the Internet and appear to come from the Secret Service....
