Decorah Police arrested a Secret Service agent early Saturday morning on drunk driving charges.
40-year-old Daniel Valencia of Washington, D.C., allegedly ran a red light about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. The police officer who pulled over Valencia said his eyes were bloodshot and watery and he smelled strongly of alcohol. Valencia told a police officer he had had two drinks that night.
After a field sobriety test, an officer decided Valencia was too intoxicated to drive. Valencia refused to take a preliminary breath test, and refused to give a breath sample at the jail. He was then charged with operating while intoxicated. He was released from jail Monday after posting bail.
A spokesman for the Secret Service said the law enforcement agency is aware of the charges against Valencia and has turned the matter over to its Office of Professional Responsibility.
