SALT LAKE CITY, April 30 (UPI) -- A restaurant server in Salt Lake City said Secret Service agents partied in Utah's capital several years ago, not just recently in out-of-country venues.

Emily Sloan-Pace, a waitress at a Hilton Garden Inn restaurant when former President George W. Bush went to Utah's capital to give a speech in August 2005, said eight members of Bush's protective detail ran up a $400 bar tab on beer and liquor, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The agents spent the evening "aggressively trying to get us [Sloan-Pace and another server] to go back to their rooms with them," she said. "They were relentless. They kept asking and asking us to go to their rooms with them. They were drinking a lot."

The waitresses didn't go to any rooms, Sloan-Pace said. She said she and the other woman each were tipped $60.

Secret Service scandals recently and last year involved agents and prostitutes in Colombia and El Salvador. The agents under investigation were in the South American and Central American countries in advance of visits by President Barack Obama.
