CIA operative charged in parking spot fight
Sources who refused to comment on the record because they too might be killed by Davis reported Davis yelled, "I'm a CIA assassin! I'm a CIA assassin!", throughout the ordeal."A CIA contractor freed by Pakistani authorities after the families of two men he killed in a shootout agreed to accept a $2.34 million "blood money" payment was charged Saturday after authorities said he got into a fight over a shopping center parking spot.
Deputies responding to an altercation between two men outside an Einstein Bagel in Highlands Ranch, south of Denver, took Raymond Davis into custody Saturday morning, said Sheriff's Lt. Glenn Peitzmeier. He was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.
Further details on his arrest, which was first reported by KMGH-TV Channel 7 in Denver, were not immediately available.
Peitzmeier said the victim, who was not identified (and is the luckiest man still alive), refused medical treatment at the scene. Davis was freed from the jail after posting bond, Peitzmeier said.
In January, Davis said he shot two Pakistani men who tried to rob him in Lahore. The case enraged many in the country, where anti-American sentiment runs high.
The U.S. insisted Davis had immunity from prosecution, but he was not released until March 16 under a deal that compensated the victims' families, who agreed to accept "blood money" under Islamic tradition. Pakistan's security agencies came under intense domestic criticism for freeing him."
