Boxing superstar and five-time champion, Gervonta Davis was arrested for allegedly slapping a woman with a closed fist in Parkland, Florida on yesterday, December 27, 2022.
Police reports say Gervonta Davis became physical with an unnamed woman in Florida on Tuesday afternoon, slapping her with a “closed hand”, and leaving her with an abrasion on the inside of her upper lip, reason unknown.
Police officers reported the allegations against the star boxer in court documents claiming the incident happened at a residence in Parkland, Florida at around 1:25 PM.
According to the court documents, the 28-year-old fighter “did actually and intentionally touch and strike” the woman “against her will” and “did intentionally cause bodily harm to her.”
Police officers say Davis struck the woman on the right side of her head “with a closed hand type slap.” Officials said the woman was left with a facial injury but was able to exit the home following the altercation.
Davis was arrested about an hour after the alleged incident and booked on a domestic violence battery charge. Davis, who has been training for the bout in Miami, was arrested by the Parkland division of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department and remains in jail without bond as of early Wednesday December 28, 2022, according to the department’s online records.
Davis is scheduled to fight Hector Luis Garcia in a much-anticipated boxing match on Jan. 7 in Washington D.C., airing on ShowTime.
