Kamala Harris’s Secret Service Agent Seriously Ill and Hospitalized

(UnitedHeadlines.com) – After exhibiting “distressing behavior,” a U.S. Secret Service agent assigned to Vice President Kamala Harris, was hospitalized and was removed from her duties on April 24.

According to the U.S. Secret Service, the incident occurred at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on April 22 while awaiting Harris’ departure for a flight to Wisconsin. Harris was not present at the time of the incident, which did not delay her travel.

The agent, Air Force veteran Michelle Herczeg, arrived at Joint Base Andrews and started deleting apps from another agent’s cell phone. She then began speaking gibberish and incoherently and was mumbling to herself. Herczeg hid behind the curtains, throwing items, including menstrual pads, at another agent while telling the other agents they “needed to listen to God.”

When her superior officer relieved her of the assignment, she “snapped entirely,” responding by punching, pushing, and tackling him. She was handcuffed while medical personnel were requested. Following an initial medical evaluation, Herczeg was hospitalized.

According to the chief of communications for the Secret Service, Anthony Guglielmi, the incident “was a medical matter.”

Before she worked for the Secret Service, Herczeg was a senior corporal with the Dallas Police Department, who joined the department in 2008. In December 2016, she filed a $1 million gender discrimination lawsuit against the city of Dallas, alleging that she “was targeted for being a female officer.” In the lawsuit, she alleged that after she reported sexual harassment by a superior officer in May 2015, she was retaliated against. She alleged that after she reported the alleged assault, she was not permitted to return to working on a special crime reduction team and was refused overtime patrol shifts. In the lawsuit, she claimed the alleged retaliation caused her “stress and mental anguish.” A Texas court dismissed the lawsuit, with a court of appeals denying her 2021 appeal and her 2022 request for a rehearing.
