    FILE - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence speaks during a joint press conference with Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos at the presidential guesthouse in Cartagena, Colombia, Aug. 13, 2017.

    The U.S. Army detail assigned to Vice President Mike Pence’s communications team has been removed from White House duties after being caught on video bringing women back to their hotel in Panama, according to three U.S. defense officials.

    As NBC News reports, the soldiers failed to register the women as guests when they brought them in to the hotel, the officials said.

    Three defense officials initially told NBC News that the soldiers were in Colombia in connection with Pence's trip to Latin America earlier this month, but a defense official later told NBC News the incident occurred in Panama.
