A 90-day house arrest has resulted in the arrest of Gervonta Davis. Boxing superstar Gervonta Davis was arrested Thursday after a court hearing and transported to the Baltimore City Central Booking Intake Facility.
After pleading guilty to four counts coming from a hit-and-run collision in November 2020 that wounded four people, including a pregnant woman, Davis was sentenced to 90 days of house arrest at the home of his trainer, Calvin Ford. The punishment was meted out last month after the fighter confessed to the charges. Davis has been serving his sentence at the home of his trainer.
Michael Tomko, Davis’ attorney, stated to various stations in Baltimore that his client was taken into custody during an “impromptu” hearing late in the afternoon on Thursday.
A month ago, the court also placed Davis, now 28 years old, on three years of probation and ordered him to perform 200 hours of community service. The decision was made less than two weeks after Davis won through technical knockout in the seventh round over Ryan Garcia in the bout considered the most important of his career.
A misdemeanor domestic violence charge of battery inflicting bodily harm was also pending against Davis, originally from Baltimore. However, prosecutors in Broward County, Florida, dropped the case last week when the complainant stated that she did not intend to file charges against Davis.
