CIA Operative Arrested in Colorado

CIA operative Raymond Davis was arrested in Highlands Ranch, Colo., on Saturday. Davis and two other men had been arguing over a parking space when the argument turned violent, and Davis was reportedly the aggressor. He was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, but was released after posting a $1,750 bond. Davis made worldwide headlines when he was arrested in Pakistan after he shot and killed two men who he said were trying to mug him. His imprisonment turned into a standoff between the U.S. and Pakistan about the CIA’s covert activities in that country, and he was freed only after the U.S. paid $2.3 million to the victims’ families.
