Pro boxer Gervonta Davis was recently released from jail on Wednesday afternoon and issued a no-contact order in relation to his recent arrest in South Florida.
Gervonta Davis was arrested
Boxing Scene had reported that Davis was placed under arrest Tuesday afternoon after Parkland (Fla.) police responded to 911 calls of an alleged domestic violence incident in a Parkland residence. Two separate 911 calls—which were revealed by TMZ Sports but which were authenticated by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department—revealed a female claiming that she was attacked and that “he’s going to kill me.”
An incident report documenting the case, a copy of which was obtained by Boxing Scene, alleges that “On 12/27/22, at or about 1325 hrs (1:25 p.m.)… the listed defendant, Gervonta Davis, did actually and intentionally touch and strike the listed victim… against her will and did intentionally cause bodily harm to her.”
In addition to this, the report detailed that Davis allegedly struck the unidentified female on the right side of her head with a closed-hand type slap. The force of the blow left a cut over the alleged victim’s upper lip on the right side of her mouth.
Parkland officers placed Davis arrested and processed just under 90 minutes later, according to court records. The boxer was held overnight in Broward County main jail before a scheduled court hearing in Seventeenth Judicial Circuit of Florida on Wednesday. The presiding judge set bond at $1,000 and issued a no-contact order prior to his release Wednesday afternoon.
A court date was not yet assigned as this goes to publish. The official charge is one count of Battery-Causing Bodily Harm, a first-degree misdemeanor and handled as a domestic violence case.
Davis took to social media to dispute the charges.
“Do not let these people misguide you all on this bullsh!t,” Davis stated in an Instagram post, accompanied by an image from Tuesday at 12:44 p.m. ET—less than an hour before the 911 calls—which shows Davis watching “Frozen” with his daughter. “This was just yesterday, moments before me and my child mother had argument! Watching Frozen with my oldest daughter. I never put my hands on my child mother nor my f—ing daughter. Are you f—ing crazy!! Im (sic) not a monster I been quiet for too long.”
