Secret Service detail of Doug Emhoff spotted blocking disabled parking lot

Secret Service detail protecting Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff was spotted blocking access to a disabled parking lot outside a Whole Foods in Los Angeles.

Emhoff was out shopping in the Westside area of ​​Brentwood on Wednesday when his two-vehicle motorcade blocked the accessible car park for around 20 minutes, a witness told DailyMail.com.

While Emhoff was shopping at Whole Foods, the two black Chevrolet Suburbans bearing Department of Homeland Security plates parked diagonally in a disabled parking spot, photos of the incident show.

Emhoff, who shares a home with Vice President Kamala Harris in Brentwood, was escorted by two officers as he left Whole Foods with his groceries.

Harris has been outspoken in his advocacy for people with disabilities, a stance seemingly in contrast to the scene that unfolded on Wednesday. A Secret Service spokesman declined to comment on the case when contacted by DailyMail.com
