Warrant Issued For Gervonta Davis
Gervonta Davis’ plans of a showdown with Ryan Garcia may be put on-hold, as the WBA super featherweight champion has a warrant out for his arrest.
Per a report from TMZ, Davis is wanted in connection to assault allegations stemming from a confrontation he had in a high-end mall in Virginia.
The incident, which took place on February 17th, saw Davis get into an altercation with another man at an ATM machine, leading to police claiming the Maryland born boxer assaulted the other person.
When officers arrived to the scene, reports allege that Davis “directed derogatory and offensive language at the officers in a public setting.”
Witness accounts claim Davis shoved an officer while swearing at the cops, and his friends trying to restrain him from any further issues.
The warrant for Davis’ arrest is on one misdemeanor count of assault.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 1 year in jail and a $2,500 fine.
As of Tuesday morning, the Fairfax County Police Department have made multiple attempts to reach the undefeated fighter, all of which were unsuccessful.
