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.
