A uniformed Secret Service agent has been arrested for allegedly sending a nude photograph to someone he believed to be a 14-year-old girl, CNN reported Thursday. 
 
Delaware State Police reportedly caught the agent in a sting operation, after he allegedly sent several messages to an officer posing as a young girl.

Some of the messages were reportedly sent from the White House grounds.
 
The incident is the latest black eye for the Secret Service, whose reputation has been marred over the past two years by a series of scandals involving agent misconduct. 
 
The agent requested meetings and sexual encounters with the state trooper who was posing as the girl.
 
“What would make you more nervous, riding on the motorcycle with me or having sex with me?” he asked in one of the messages. 
 
The agent reportedly turned himself into authorities on Monday. He has been charged with attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor, according to CNN. 
 
The Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
