Eleven U.S. Secret Service agents and five military service members are under investigation for allegedly cavorting with prostitutes and drinking at a Colombian hotel ahead of President Obama's recent visit.
The men are accused of going to the 'Pley Club' (pictures below) and bringing prostitutes back to the Hotel Caribe in Cartagena, Colombia.
A heated argument between at least one of the alleged prostitutes and at least one of the Secret Service agents on Thursday was what alerted local authorities to the alleged behavior.
Adult prostitution is legal in designated "tolerance zones" in Colombia, though restricting the sex trade to those zones has been difficult.
Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan removed all eleven Secret Service agents from work, returned them to Washington D.C. and placed them on administrative leave, while the incident is being investigated. The Secret Service claims that this incident never placed the president in any danger.
The Department of Defense is also investigating its members who were allegedly present as well.
