Secret Service staffers are no longer allowed to drive official government cars within 10 hours of drinking alcohol, a senior administration official told NBC News on Thursday night.

The official confirmed the rules were put into place after two allegedly drunk agents drove into a barrier during a suspicious package investigation next to the White House on March 4. The new policy was first reported Thursday by The Washington Post.
