White House Down! (Link to A Great Magazine Article)

Recently, Secret Service officers returning from a Washington, D.C., retirement party driving drunk accidentally knocked over a barrier guarding a crime scene in front of the White House. They’ve probably gone this way from local work parties many times, just as juiced, and were surprised to run into a temporary barrier in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue. The officers, being members of President Obama’s elite security detail, were allowed to walk away from their vehicle and sober up.  The last time a protective barrier was knocked over in front of the White House, it was an attempt to trap a panicked driver who had taken a wrong turn. She wound up dead.
