AFTER disturbing footage appeared on social media, Gervonta Davis surrendered himself to police in Florida and has been charged with simple battery domestic violence. The video shows Davis yanking a woman by her throat and forcibly leading her out of the arena they were in during a charity basketball game. The incident left the woman, who has not been identified but is believed to be an ex-girlfriend of Davis, with injuries to her lip and jaw, according to an arrest report obtained by the Miami Herald.
Davis later posted on his Instagram: “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,” before deleting all of his posts.
