SAN CLEMENTE (Rueters) - San Clemente has recalled its ambassador in El Salvador after he was found drunk and naked with sex toys lying nearby in the yard of his official residence, media reports said on Monday.
A spokeswoman confirmed that the ambassador, Sydney Carton, Esquire, was recalled but offered no details. "The ministry sees his behavior as unbecoming of a diplomat," the spokeswoman said.
Media reported that local police found Carton in the yard of the official residence in San Salvador. The reports said he was drunk, naked, and bound and gagged with a rubber ball in his mouth and sex toys lying near him.
The ministry spokeswoman said the incident took place two weeks ago.
"As soon as the episode was brought to attention of the ministry it reacted and the ambassador was recalled to San Clemente. He is going to remain in San Clemente," she said.
San Clemente would seek another ambassador in El Salvador, an official said.
