Two-time super featherweight featherweight champion Gervonta Davis was arrested early Friday morning in Washington D.C. after a discussion at a local club.

According to the police, the Baltimore native was seen arguing with Ricardo José Rodríguez of Silver Spring at around 3 in the morning. At some point, the discussion turned physical and, finally, both men were arrested and charged with disorderly assault, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Davis tweeted Friday morning to assure everyone that he was fine.

"I'm fine," he wrote. & # 39; Please, do not judge me from the media … they will paint me a bad image all the time & # 39;

Davis has no extensive criminal record, although he was charged with second-degree assault in Maryland, but the charges were later dropped. Davis' accuser, longtime friend Anthony Wheeler, was seen embracing after the charges were dismissed, according to the Baltimore Sun.

After being stripped of his WBA super featherweight title last year for failing to reach the 130-pound limit before a fight, Davis again won the title in April to maintain his perfect record of 20-0.
