The three agents were sent home by the Service for 'disciplinary reasons' in advance of US President Barack Obama's arrival.

At least one agent was found 'inebriated' in an Amsterdam hotel and two more were 'deemed complicit', the Associate Press reports.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed that three agents were sent back to the United States for "disciplinary reasons". He added that the event 'did not compromise' the President's security.

The Washington Post reports that the three agents are now on 'administrative leave' from the Counter Assault Team, one of which is reported to be a team leader.
