Scott Pruitt's protective detail destroyed the door in the home of Capitol Hill, where he lived. He believed he was unconscious and did not react and needed salvation. In a strange incident that the EPA refused for months to discuss, sources and police received radio traffic from ABC News.
The incident occurred in the late afternoon of March 29, 2017, at Capitol Hill's address, which Pruitt had leased, and owned the wife of a top energy lobbyist. A Capitol police officer called the emergency call at the behest of Pruitt's security service, who had unsuccessfully tried to reach him by phone and knocked against the front door of the building, according to police reports collected by ABC News.
"They say he is unconscious at this time," the 91
Reactive fire units mobilized from a Capitol Hill station house. "Engine three, Medic two react to unconscious person," said the radio transmission.
The protective detail then broke the building's glazed front door and climbed two flights to Prutts $ 50-a-night-bedroom, where two sources told ABC News that he was found awake by a nap. It is unclear what has led to the panic that has caused the response. Pruitt refused medical attention and a police report was never filed.
The EPA finally agreed to compensate the owner for the damage to the door, a source familiar with the agreement told ABC News. EPO spokesman Jahan Wilcox did not respond to requests for information about the incident or refunds.
The previously unreported incident occurred when Pruitt lived in Capitol Hill condos belonging to the wife of a top energy lobbyist. Vicki Hart and her husband, lobbyist J. Steven Hart, both confirmed the events, but none of them would say how much the damage to the door costs to repair.
The EPA has reimbursed Pruit's former landlord Vicki Hart for the cost of the door.
ABC News reported for the first time Thursday that Pruitt had lived in the condo in Washington for the first six months. The apartment is in a prime location – less than a block from the US Capitol Complex – and other apartments in the building complex have leased for as much as $ 5,000 a month, according to a source familiar with a neighboring lease.
The EPA allowed Bloomberg News to verify copies of canceled checks that Pruitt had paid to the owner of the condominium. The news agency reported that the checks show different amounts paid on sporadic dates – not a traditional monthly "rental payment" of the same amount per month, according to Bloomberg. All in all, Pruitt paid $ 6.100 over six months to the limited liability company for the Capitol Hill condominium owned by Vicki Hart, whose husband, J. Steven Hart, is the chairman of a top lobbying firm and is registered with several key environmental organizations energy problems.
Two sources told ABC News that Pruit's daughter used the apartment in 2017 during her term as a White House intern.
"The lease was with Scott Pruitt," said Vicki Hart ABC News. "When other people used the bedroom or the living quarters, I was never told, and I never gave him permission to do that."
The EPA did not respond to appeals for clarification or clarification of life arrangements with Pruitts daughter. McKenna Pruitt, now a law student, could not be reached by phone or e-mail.
