Davis reportedly drove away from a Baltimore club in a Lamborghini on November 5th. He had a police escort with him. He would still run a red light, striking the passenger side of another vehicle. The prosecution said that Davis made eye contact with one of the four crash victims, a pregnant woman named Jyair Smith, before fleeing the scene.
A Baltimore Circuit Court judge declined to approve a plea deal that would have had Davis spend 60 days under house arrest as opposed to serving jail time.
