Former CIA official in sex case arrested
Andrew Warren, the former CIA station chief who was accused of sexual assault by two women in Algeria in 2008, was arrested at a Norfolk hotel Monday afternoon, a police spokesman confirmed Monday night.
Norfolk Police Department spokesman Christopher Amos confirmed Warren had been arrested "on federal sexual deviancy charges" and turned over to Diplomatic Security Service agents.
"He was arrested without incident," Amos said.
"The indictment alleges that at the time of the alleged sexual assault, the victim was incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct and was physically incapable of declining participation in, or communicating unwillingness to engage in the sexual act," the Justice Department said.
Warren was scheduled for trial in June, the Justice Department and Warren's attorney Mark David Hunter told me in March.
Warren was fired by the CIA in March 2009.
Investigators said they had been tipped that Warren had been spotted at the Ramada Limited in Norfolk, WVEC reported.
“Police say a handgun was also taken from the scene,” the station also reported.
