CNN on Wednesday evening quoted law enforcement sources as saying an agent assigned to Pence was arrested when police saw him leaving a prostitute's room at a hotel in Maryland last week. The representative spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss details of the incident beyond a public statement.

"The Secret Service takes allegations of criminal activity very seriously", the spokesman said in the statement.

The hotel manager had become suspicious of the activity in the room and called local police. The Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the incident. While the spokesperson did not acknowledge exactly what went down, they admitted "an alleged incident" occurred, adding, "We are exploring the full range of disciplinary actions". The employee was placed on administrative leave and his security clearance was suspended.

The agent was arrested and charged with solicitation, and later self-reported his arrest to the Secret Service, CNN reported.

Nine agents left or lost their jobs as the result of a prostitution scandal in Colombia.

The incident is the latest in a series of Secret Service embarrassments, the most recent of which was the theft of an agency computer, lapel pins and radio from an agent's vehicle in NY.

It was later revealed that the same supervisor and another colleague had been sending sexually suggestive messages to a female subordinate.
