CNN correspondent Arwa Damon bit two medics in violent, drunken rage at U.S. Embassy in Baghdad: lawsuit

Two employees of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad are suing CNN and one of its senior international correspondents, Arwa Damon, claiming that she was "seriously intoxicated" and "unruly and violent" on July 19 when she allegedly bit them both as they provided her medical aid.
Charles Simons and Tracy Lamar, EMTs working for a private contractor in Baghdad, claim CNN has continued to employ the Emmy-award winning journalist despite her “history of becoming intoxicated and then abusive.”
The 36-year-old was “totally out of control” the day of the incident, forcing embassy staff to call the medics to calm the correspondent.
