For a CIA operative, Raymond Davis sure has trouble keeping a low profile.
Earlier this year Davis sparked a diplomatic standoff after shooting two men dead on the streets of Lahore, Pakistan.
Now Davis — who was freed in March after two months in Pakistani custody only after a deal was reached to pay $2.34 million in ‘blood money’ to the victims’ families — on Saturday was arrested after a scuffle outside an Einstein Bagels south of Denver, the Associated Press reports.According to a local ABC affiliate, Davis and another man got in an argument over a parking space, and things allegedly got physical. Davis was allegedly the aggressor, according to the report. Jeff Maes, who was involved in the incident recounted the story to Watch 7NEWS:
“He literally parked his car behind me and started shouting at me and I says, ‘You need to relax’. And he got out of the car,” Maes said Saturday. “When I got hit I went back, I hit my back straight on the concrete and then, I don’t know, I must’ve got up. I looked, he’s standing there and I got up to defend myself and started again.”
Authorities charged Davis with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, according to the report, and he was released after posting $1,750 bond.
When reached for comment, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office did not offer any additional details.
