Gervonta Davis Arrested For Simple Battery, Domestic Violence Over Viral Video Involving Baby Mama
Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis turned himself in to police after a viral video showed him assaulting his ex-girlfriend in Florida.
The WBA Super Featherweight Champion has been charged with simple battery and domestic violence following video that shows the 25-year-old having an argument with the mother of his daughter during a charity basketball game last Sunday.
The video shows him confronting the seated woman, snatching her by the arm, and then walking her out of the arena.
None of the nearby people sitting stepped in to intervene.

Davis spoke out about the incident on social media:
“I never once hit her, yea I was aggressive and told her come on… that’s the mother of my child I would never hurt her other than that happy New Years.. January was trash.”
