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

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.

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
