Not-Jenna's purse stolen; Secret Service agent mugged …

Is it just me, or is something more going on with this story than meets the eye?

The acting director of the White House Travel Office was robbed and beaten in Waikiki early on Tuesday morning outside a nightclub, according to Honolulu police.
"He was knocked down, punched, kicked -- his wallet and id were stolen," Honolulu Police Department Capt. Frank Fujii said.
Pitts' passport and international phone were also taken.
Pitts left the bar alone. He walked through International Marketplace, where he was confronted by three men beaten up and robbed, according to a source familiar with the case.
