Secret Service Agents Hospitalized Over Exposure to ‘Powdery Substance’

Two Secret Service Uniformed Division agents have been hospitalized after being exposed to a white “powdery substance” during a traffic stop in Washington, D.C.

Anthony Guglielmi, Secret Service’s Chief of Communications, said:

“Shortly before 11 am, Secret Service Uniformed Division made a traffic stop in the 1700 Blk of New York Avenue.

“During the stop, officers came in contact with a powdery substance believed to be suspected narcotics.

“1 individual taken into custody & officers are being evaluated.”

The incident occurred 2 miles from the U.S. Naval Observatory, which is where Vice President Kamala Harris lives.

One individual was taken into custody.

CBS reporter Nicole Sganga said:

“Two U.S. Secret Service officers were transported to the hospital after exposure to a horse tranquilizer.

“Officers were performing a routine traffic stop and detained an individual with an extradition warrant when they came into contact with the white powder, ID’d by DC Hazmat.”
