WASHINGTON — A former FBI agent will undergo a psychiatric evaluation after making violent threats against CIA officers at the main gate of the agency’s headquarters in Virginia last week.
A federal magistrate ordered a psychiatric evaluation for Tunisia Davis, who was arrested at CIA headquarters after the confrontation with security officers.
Davis, an Alexandria resident, was charged with interfering with a federal officer, a misdemeanor, in federal court in Alexandria last week. After a combative court appearance Friday, U.S. Magistrate Theresa Carroll Buchanan ordered Davis held for the evaluation.
According to court records, Davis on Thursday morning visited NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland, then drove to CIA headquarters at Langley. She was arrested after refusing to follow CIA security officers’ instructions. One officer said she tried to reach for an officer’s gun while partially handcuffed and shouted that the CIA could be bombed.
Court records say she was an FBI special agent from 2004 to 2010.
NBC Washington reports Davis reached toward an officer’s firearm and later threatened to shoot the CIA officers and to bomb the agency.
News4 also reports she has posted several videos on Facebook in which she criticizes the federal government.
She also reportedly used the name “Mahogany” while being questioned by CIA officers.
