A limo shipped from Washington, D.C. to taxi President Obama around Israel failed and had to be towed in Jerusalem.

The president hadn’t yet arrived in the country when the malfunction occurred. He arrived in Tel Aviv Tuesday.

“One of our vehicles is experiencing mechanical problems. This is why we bring multiple vehicles and a mechanic on trips,” according to a Secret Service spokesman, Agent Edwin Donovan.

The Secret Service ships a number of limos for each presidential trip.

CNN reported the limo suffered a case of auto indigestion because a driver filled it up with gasoline instead of diesel.

I’d have guessed that a member of the Secret Service who heard Obama’s energy speech the other day instinctively filled the tank with algae.

One of the limos had a problem in Dublin, Ireland a couple of years ago (but for a different reason), so the car isn’t quite as unstoppable as had been previously reported.

Here’s video of President Obama’s arrival in Israel, shortly after The Beast was towed away:
