Skip to comments.EXCLUSIVE: Biden's Brawlers: Veep's Security Team Squared Off in Nantucket Melee
Posted on 06/22/2012 4:45:00 AM PDT by lbryce
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.
The fight started just after midnight on Nov. 24, 2011, when, according to the police report, Gahagan accused the Air Force men of taking photos of him dancing with female Secret Service agent Yumi Kim, according to the police report. The Air Force officers, John Tran, Michael Valeich and Lucas Wiemer, told cops they didnt know Gahagan, Dawes or Kim and had not been taking pictures.

At this point the Vice President knows he's got nothing to lose and is just biden his time until he finds the new digs for after the election.
what, they short-changed the hookers again?
Kinda sounds like the STU team from EFAD. Makes me wonder what other dirty tricks they have up their sleeves...
To think Biden charges them rent, and we get stuck with the tab!
Gee! I used to respect the Secret Service. Who are these people?
the real deal
Yumi Kim, eh?
Brownshirts in training?
I’m beginning to think there are entirely too many members of the secret service guarding the first and second families. Too many agents with too much time on their hands with not enough, really, to do.
It’s in the FedGov’s standard procedures manual:
When in Nantucket, party like a Kennedy!
Maybe Obama brought in his SS guys from Chicago.
The Democrats M.O.: Regression To The Mean.
About two weeks ago I was flying from LAX to Dulles on the red-eye and noticed a couple of individuals in suits standing near the gate with ear pieces in. They were more interested in BS’ing than any type of security activities. About 10 min before they started boarding out comes Sebelius with two more security personnel.
I swear that three of them could have passed for teenagers. Needless to say, I’d want better security than what this group seem to offer.
The new SS (scuhtzstaffel). Every illegal tyrant needs them. Decent, honorable men could not work directly for these people,IMO.
Either Obama and his minions want men of this type of brutish, course, and immoral behavior around them or the Obama team are clowns who recruited from the cast of” Animal House”.
Exactly like the STU Team in EFAD.
Bullies with badges, like Bob Bullard.
If my job was to take a bullet for Short Bus, I’d drink heavily, too.
My “theory” of the negative press about secret service agents (and this is only speculation because I DO NOT TRUST THE SOCIALIST TOTUS)never trust a commie ever........is Romney will not see November due to a “lapse” of the secret service protection detail and the secret service will be the fall guys. the secret service will be overhauled and obama will pick and assign his own protection detail and he will have a second term because he will be running unopposed. Just a theory......obama is a commie.....never trust them. He cannot run on his record, so why worry when you are the most powerful man in America. Please note, this is not a warning...only personal SPECULATION and is in no way a threat against a candidate. Obama will use any tactic to remain in office. Look at his heroes like Putin, Chavez, Castro and the Muslim Brotherhood and all of the other people he considers role models. Even Bill Ayers thought the ends justify the means for his actions and Obama is somebody who was under his wing. Any amount of force or coercion is in the communist playbook. Obama is a commie. Dont trust him.
I’m into my 2nd run of the trilogy, and had just covered the party at Malvone’s house in EFAD. Then I saw this and it struck me. Reading isn’t going as fast as I’d like because of an eye problem. But I’ll get it done.
I know the printed font is pretty small in EFAD. If you are having eye strain trouble, (I’m 55 and mine are getting worse all the time), this might be enough reason to get a Kindle. The basic B&W model costs about $100 bucks, and the battery lasts for weeks. You can crank the font up as big as you want, and just click through the “pages.”
I’m reading on a Kindle. My left eye (I think it’s dry eye...will have it checked out next month at my annual exam) starts bothering me if I read too long. Even with an increased font size. Eye drops help, but it still irritates somewhat. I’ll get by, though.
Sorry to hear that. My eyes are heading the same direction. Probably from staring at screends while writing four novels, nearly a million words of deathless prose.
I hear ya. My eyesight hasn’t changed much, but I probably do spend too much time on the PC or reading. Getting out a lot more now that we have summer, but come fall & winter, back to the same ‘ol...
I’ve never heard of this type of behavior in other presidencies from the Secret Service, maybe they kept it on the down-lo. These people are having one big 24 hr a day party, banging whore and getting in fights? No surprise they reflect the outlook of the Asshole in Chief. What a disgrace!!
You never heard the stories about the drunken USSS agents at the Ft Worth Press Club and Pat Kirkwood's *Cellar Club* strip joint the night before JFK was assassinated in Dallas?
the fish rots from the head down...
so all you third partiers...all you "I just won't vote" "conservatives" and "patriots" and you too busy to care freepers just remember....
these type of things are the CONSEQUENCES when you don't do your duty to get rid of the bamey reqieme...
I’m beginning to wonder if all these stories about unprofessionalism by the SS might be a clever ruse to try and invite security breaches (which would of course be thwarted) to try and generate sympathy for the president and to try to fan the racism flames.
lol no.. sorry that was way before my time!!
