The US government claims CIA contractor Raymond Davis enjoys diplomatic immunity

After money was paid to victim's families Davis was released from a Pakistan jail in January. He was charged with killing two Pakistanis whom he claims were about to rob him.

Davis was arrested in Highlands Ranch Colorado after he got in an argument over a parking spot. Davis was arrested outside a bagel shop at the Town Center in Highlands Ranch.

Davis along with another man got in a verbal argument about the parking spot that escalated into a fight. Sources say that Davis was the aggressor.

The fity year old vicitm was treated at the scene and released. The incident was about 9 in the morning.

Davis was taken into custody at the scene. He is facing misdemeanor charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. He was released after posting $1,750 bond. Davis supposedly asked authorities to keep the arrest quiet but the officers followed their normal protocols. This material comes from the Daily Beast. A Pakistani paper has a more detailed account here.

Here is an excerpt from the Pakistani paper describing the event: ""According to the wife of 50-year-old victim Jeffrey Maes, her husband pulled into a Starbucks parking lot for coffee and bagels and found a space. She said Davis pulled up behind them, got out of his car cursing, claiming the space was his. After a very brief confrontation, Davis struck Maes once in the face, knocking him out.Maes regained consciousness after 30 seconds and another fight ensued, according to Meas’ wife. There were many witnesses. She said Davis kept saying, “You’re done. I’m going to get you.”I’ve never seen a man so full of rage,” Maes’ wife said."" Maybe the CIA needs to hire experts in anger management.
