'Passed out, drunk' US Secret Service official arrested after Obama's Florida trip.

Washington, Oct 13 ( ANI ): A US Secret Service officer has been arrested after he was found passed out and apparently drunk on a Miami street corner several hours after President Barack Obama left the state following a day trip.

A Miami police officer found Aaron Francis Engler lying near an intersection near a popular night spot in downtown Miami, Florida.

According to the arrest affidavit, Engler had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol, the Telegraph reports.

He was arrested on two misdemeanor counts after becoming combative with the arresting officer.

According to the report, the Secret Service in Washington said the case would be turned over to the agency's Office of Professional Responsibility.

A law enforcement official said Engler was assigned to the agency's uniformed division and was in Miami in a support role while the president was visiting.

Obama was in Miami on Thursday for a campaign rally at the University of Miami and an evening fundraiser. ( ANI )
