World News – A former CIA contractor involved in a fatal shootout in Pakistan and then charged with a felony in Colorado after a fight over a parking space has pleaded guilty Friday to misdemeanor assault.
Davis was initially charged with felony assault, misdemeanor disorderly conduct, and a sentencing enhancing charge of crime of violence.
However, on Friday, he pleaded to the reduced charge of third-degree assault.
Davis was sentenced to two years of probation, ordered to write a letter of apology and must attend anger management classes. He must also pay restitution but the amount has not been calculated.
The charges against Raymond Allen Davis stem from a fight outside a Highlands Ranch bagel shop in October 2011, about six months after Davis’ release from Pakistan.
Davis and another man were fighting over a parking spot outside an Einstein Bros. Bagel shop in the Highlands Ranch Town Center.
The other driver, Jeff Maes, told 7NEWS that he had pulled into a parking spot when Davis pulled up behind him and started shouting and thrashing him that fractured vertebrae.
Davis, the so-called “Highlands Ranch Rambo,” was jailed in a Pakistani prison on Jan. 27, 2011 after he shot and killed two Pakistani men as he sat in his car.
Davis said he shot the two men in self-defense as they tried to rob him. He claimed the two men attacked him as he drove through a busy Lahore neighborhood.
He was charged with two counts of murder but then released in March 2011 after the families of the two Pakistanis he killed pardoned him in exchange for $2.3 million in compensation or “blood money,” which was paid by the United States government. Agencies
