EXCLUSIVE: Biden's Security Team Squared Off in Nantucket Melee
By Jana Winter

MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass. Getting into a barroom fight with the men who guard Vice President Joe Biden would likely get someone locked up -- unless the brawlers also happen to be on the very same security team.
That's just what happened in a bloody, booze-fueled brawl that spilled out of Nantuckets Rose and Crown nightclub while Biden and his family were spending last Thanksgiving on the island, according to police logs, notes and reports obtained by FoxNews.com. It was one of at least two fights police in and around Marthas Vineyard have investigated involving Secret Service agents and other members of President Obama's and Bidens security details in the last year as the leaders and their families vacationed nearby.
The fight, which a police report said caused visible damage to both parties, pitted Jonathan Dawes, a hulking, 217-pound Secret Service agent, and Eric Bomb Squad Gahagan, a Massachusetts State Police bomb technician assigned to Biden, against three Air Force officers who had just been assigned to the same detail. The airmen, who suffered black eyes, head contusions and a chipped tooth, thought their assailants were local cops. Gahagan and Dawes knew the airmen were part of the Biden detail.
A bouncer told cops the incident bothered him because Gahagan and Dawes were both considerably bigger than the men they attacked, the eight-page police report stated. He said he felt that Gahagan and Dawes were acting like bullies.

..should have sent the Marines!
You know, I once knew a man from Nantucket ...
The new diverse Secret Service —niiiiiice....!
Romney better hire a private security team until the Secret Service can be cleaned up. It must be difficult for these guys to work for the Obama Administration, but alcohol and whores aren’t the way to deal with the problem.
( brawl )
WTF. Looks like the praetorian guard is out of control
Yeah but. The pics at the link shows two Caucasian Americans.
These guys sound like they watch way TOOOOO much TV!
Apparently the hookers there are not as good as the ones in Columbia.
This administration is scum, top to bottom, apparently.
:: pitted Jonathan Dawes, a hulking, 217-pound Secret Service agent, and Eric Bomb Squad Gahagan, a Massachusetts State Police bomb technician...Gahagan and Dawes knew the airmen were part of the Biden detail. ::
Sounds like a bit of initiation; rookie hazing.
What a disgrace. The Secret Service used to be viewed at an honor and a dream position for the elite. Today, it’s a reflection of the administration - scum.
"Not me, I had to watch her fat ass last week, You take her."
Is this Biden?
If this is how these juvenile thugs behave toward one another, it doesn’t require much imagination to know how a poor “civilian” would be treated.
The aggressors in this NEED TO BE CASHIERED and their firing offense records should display the reason so some unsuspecting local PD doesn’t provide them a target-rich environment.
Oh, wait! Chicago and DC would hire them in a Nantucket minute.
I’ve advised ALL the males in this family that if they find themselves in a bar where off-duty cops gather, LEAVE: They’re armed, probably DRUNK and they’re ALWAYS RIGHT!
Exit question, does anyone here think these guys are up to using their bodies as shields like the SS did for Reagan?
I never knew that feller from Nantucket but I sure have heard a lot about him.
Wow, so VERY cosmopolitan. Another uplifting vignette seeping out of the rotting corpse of this (mis)administration.
Personally, I’d insist that any agent that had anything to do with personally protecting Obama be assigned to his disgraced pResident detail.
Democrats in revenge changed the lifetime protection because of Reagan and Bush I, but W, in his misguided benificence continued the Clinton’s protection because of who knows why.....
I will scream holy hell if Romney wins and then turns around and orders deviating from the maximum 10 years for Obama. He can hire and personally pay all the contaminated SS agents we’ll have to put (figuratively) down.
When in Nantucket, party like a Kennedy!
so i'm stuck on Nantucket (one of the islands off of massachusetts) for thanksgiving... i have 2 options for working out. one is at the local fire department or there is a "health club" which charges $25 per day!!! or $85 for the week!!!!! the equipment in the FD is circa Arnold days! so i think i'll use some of the tax payers money and use the good gym!!! Thank you to all of you who pay your taxes!!!
I was thinking the same on the “hulking” comment. I’m 6’3” and 240 and I’m not hulking. Even weirder that a bouncer supposedly said something like that. (You can’t trust the media to get anything right)
No, but it is how Mr. Blutarsky became Senator Blutarsky.
If this is the caliber of “men” guarding the pResident then owebama is seriously vulnerable to a host of issues. These SS guys are easily distracted, immoral and frankly, suseptable to blackmail or outright corruption.
Hey, I just described the rest of the obama regime too!
Sums up the ENTIRE Obama administration. A result of leading (from behind) by example.
...for a woman
217 is ‘hulking’ to Nancy boys.
200 pounds is a heavyweight boxer. A 200 pound man in good shape is pretty large. A 250 pound lard ass is just a lard ass. Mohammed Ali fought at 210# and could kick just about anyone’s ass.
Not if she’s 7’ 4”...
My guess is that you tend to act the same way after a while.
I'm short. 5' 10". I've got a 50" chest. I'm a gravitational anomaly that NASA can spot from orbit. My wife doesn't seem to mind.
Maybe the 217-lb guy is only 5 feet tall. That might make his hulking, I guess.
his = him
217 can look very “hulking” if you have less than 5% body fat...
Fighting weight in Ali, Frazier #1
Ali = 215lb
Frazier+ 205.5 lb
