EXCLUSIVE: Biden's brawlers: Veep's security team squared off in Nantucket melee
"The fight, which a police report said “caused visible damage to both parties,” pitted Jonathan Dawes, a hulking, 217-pound Secret Service agent, and Eric “Bomb Squad” Gahagan, a Massachusetts State Police bomb technician assigned to Biden, against three Air Force officers who had just been assigned to the same detail. The airmen, who suffered black eyes, head contusions and a chipped tooth, thought their assailants were local cops. Gahagan and Dawes knew the airmen were part of the Biden detail.
A bouncer told cops “the incident bothered him because Gahagan and Dawes were both considerably bigger than the men they attacked,” the eight-page police report stated. “He said he felt that Gahagan and Dawes were acting like bullies.”
