CNN reporter blamed 'stress and a lack of food' for drunkenly biting two EMT workers at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad

The State Department has now launched an investigation after one of CNN's foreign ​correspondents ​allegedly bit two medical workers​ ​during a drunken fit at the US Embassy​ in Baghdad​.

Senior international correspondent A​rwa Damon was said to be drunk and abusive to medics stationed on the grounds of the embassy.

Tracy Lamar and Charles Simons, EMTs working for a private contractor in Iraq, say Damon chomped into each of their left arms as they tried to help her.

 

 

It's alleged she bit both EMTs on their forearms as they tried to treat her on July 19.

The medics were called to calm the correspondent after she became 'totally out of control.'

Gossip and rumor column Page Six says the State Department prepared a report on the incident, which was sent to CNN however Damon continued working for the network regardless.

She then penned a groveling apology to US Embassy staff about her 'disastrous behavior,' which she claims she doesn’t fully remember.
