Boxer Gervonta Davis ‘is in JAIL serving his 90-day home detention sentence’


Boxer Gervonta Davis ‘is in jail serving his 90-day sentence after violating the terms of his house arrest’ for hit-and-run in 2020

Gervonta Davis was reportedly ordered to serve the remainder of her house arrest sentence in prison after being taken into custody for a hearing on Thursday.

Davis’ attorney, Michael Tomko, was cited by The Baltimore Banner as confirming an “impromptu hearing” on Thursday and the publication said Tomko had confirmed Davis would serve the remainder of his 90-day sentence at home in jail.

WBAL-TV Baltimore said Davis allegedly violated the terms of his house arrest.

Davis was sentenced on May 5 following a pleas guilty last year for a hit-and-run accident that injured four people in 2020.

Davis was also sentenced to 200 hours of community service and will be on probation for three years.

Gervonta Davis pleaded guilty to four hit-and-run charges from 2020

Davis pleaded guilty in February to four offences; leaving the scene of an injury accident, driving with a revoked licence, running a red light and failing to report property damage.

In the accident, four people suffered various injuries, including a pregnant woman.

Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy said in February that in pleading guilty, Davis was doing so on the condition that there was “no agreement on the sentence that will be handed down at sentencing.”

Davis’ sentencing comes after his seventh-round knockout victory over Ryan Garcia on April 22 in front of a packed Las Vegas crowd.

The pair fought at a catchweight of 136 pounds which saw Davis improve his professional record to 29-0.

At around 2 a.m. on November 5, 2020, Davis – according to the prosecution – drove a Lamborghini under police escort after leaving a nightclub in downtown Baltimore.

At one point, he allegedly veered off the convoy, ran a red light and then hit the passenger side of a 2004 Toyota Solara.

Inside was a pregnant woman, Jyair Smith, alongside three other passengers. The prosecution alleged that David made eye contact with Smith but never came to his aid.
