A former FBI agent who confronted officials at NSA and CIA headquarters has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after her bizarre encounter with federal officials, the Associated Press reports.

Tunisia Davis, of Alexandria, is being held for a psychiatric evaluation after she was accused of trying to grab an officer’s gun and loudly declaring that the CIA should be bombed.

Authorities said Davis told CIA officials she was curious what would happen if she just showed up at headquarters.

Davis was a special agent from 2004 to 2010.

Officials said she has refused to eat or drink since being arrested.

Justice Department Blasts DEA for Lax Punishment of Agents Behind Cruel Detainment

The Justice Department criticized the DEA for the lax discipline of agents who detained a San Diego college student and left him without food or water for five days, NPR reports. 

Daniel Chong was handcuffed and left in a dark room during the 2012 detention in which he tried to stay hydrated by drinking his own urine.

“What happened to Mr. Chong is unacceptable,” the Justice Department said in a letter released Tuesday to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“The DEA’s failure to impose significant discipline on these employees further demonstrates the need for a systemic review of DEA’s disciplinary process.”

Chong settled with the government for $4.1 million.

“I didn’t stay sane,” he told All Things Considered’s Audie Cornish in May 2012, weeks after his arrest. “Eventually, by the second or third night … I went completely insane and was just trying to get a grip on reality, on what’s happening to me.”

One of the gunmen behind the shooting at a Texas cartoon contest that featured images of Prophet Muhammad strongly hinted on Twitter that he was about to get violent about 20 minutes before opening fire, the Chicago Tribune reports. 

“May Allah accept us as mujahideen,” or holy warriors, he tweeted.

One of his hashtags read: “#texasattack.”

Federal authorities were tracking 31-year-old Elton Simpson’s Twitter account and even had an open investigation on him at the time.

Homeland Security and the FBI also issued bulletins to local law enforcement, warning that the cartoon contest in Garland was a possible terrorism target.

Simpson and his roommate, Nadir Soofi, were killed, but not before shooting a security guard in the leg.
