According to Real Clear Politics, the incident took place around 9 AM on Monday morning at Joint Base Andrews, a base for Air Force One and Air Force Two located near the nation's capital.

Secret Service officer Michelle Herczeg arrived at the terminal and allegedly began acting erratically by stealing a colleague's phone, mumbling to herself, and throwing things such as menstrual pads at her fellow agents.

Herczeg allegedly told her colleagues that they were "going to burn in hell and needed to listen to God."

Her behavior led agents to believe she was suffering from a mental episode, prompting one of her superiors to informer her that she was relieved from her assignment.

"That's when she snapped entirely," one witness claimed.

Herczeg then tackled and began punching a superior officer while she had her firearm strapped in her holster. Several agents proceeded to restrain her, remove the weapon, handcuff her, and have her removed from the terminal.

The incident has raised concerns about Herczeg's past and whether she was properly vetted for her Secret Service position before taking the job.

While critics attempted to put blame on the 30x30 initiative, which aims to employ more women in law enforcement, a chief of communications for the Secret Service disputed such arguments.

"Claims that the Secret Service's standards have been lowered as a result of our signing this pledge are categorically false as "categorically false," agency spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the outlet.
