WASHINGTON: Raymond Davis, who worked as a US security contractor, shot and killed two men in Pakistan earlier this year, was arrested Saturday in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, after an altercation over a parking spot.
Davis, 36, was arrested by Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies on misdemeanor charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct after the incident outside an Einstein Bagels at the Town Center in Highlands Ranch, according to a report in The Denver Post.
Davis was Saturday released after posting a $1,750 bond.
While working as a CIA contractor in Pakistan, Davis shot two men dead in Lahore on January 27, saying they were trying to rob him.
The incident sparked a controversy over whether his status gave Davis diplomatic immunity, causing a standoff in US-Pakistan relations amid intense international media focus on the issue.
Davis was eventually freed on March 16 when victim’s families pardoned him in exchange for $2.34 million in compensation under Islamic law.
In Saturday’s incident, Davis had been arguing with a 50-year-old man about the parking space when things turned physical. Reports said the injured man was treated and released at the scene and Davis is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
