According to multiple reports, Gervonta Davis has reportedly been charged with Simple Battery Domestic Violence and was transported to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center for processing.
Davis has been arrested on charges on domestic violence and simple assault after a video showing him engaged in a physical altercation with his ex-girlfriend went viral.
Authorities commented on the viral video which captures Davis choking his ex, stating, “As a result of an ongoing investigation after being notified through social media and the victim, on Feb. 1 2020, [Davis] was observed battering his former girlfriend whom [sic] have child together.” Cops added, “[Davis] surrendered himself, to the Coral Gables Police detectives assigned to the case.”
