(Newser) – You might want to cross the street to avoid Raymond Davis: The CIA operative—who last made headlines after causing a diplomatic furor between the US and Pakistan after he killed two Pakistanis he said were trying to rob him—is in trouble again, this time in Colorado. Seems authorities were summoned to an Einstein Bagel yesterday morning, where Davis was fighting with another man—over a parking spot. Davis was booked on charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, reports the AP.

Victim Jeffrey Maes tells KMGH-TV: "He literally parked his car behind me and started shouting at me and I says, 'You need to relax'. And he got out of the car." Maes said his 6- and 8-year-old daughters started to cry. "I thought to myself, he's a pretty tough guy. I guess I'm somewhat grateful there's five men that broke it up. I've never been knocked out. But to get hit over a parking spot. That's kind of ridiculous." Click for more on Raymond Davis.
