Castle Rock, Colo. (AP) -- A CIA contractor who was once jailed
in Pakistan for killing two men in a shootout is due in a Colorado
courtroom on charges of fighting over a shopping center parking
spot. Raymond Davis was arrested Saturday on charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. A hearing is scheduled for Monday in a court in Castle Rock just south of Denver. Sheriff's deputies say the altercation took place outside an Einstein Bagel shop in Highlands Ranch south of Denver. Few details have been released. In January, Davis said he shot two Pakistani men who tried to rob him. He was released in March under a deal that paid the victims' families $2.34 million in "blood money" under Islamic tradition. Pakistan's security agencies came under intense domestic criticism for freeing him.
