Boxer Gervonta Davis was arrested and charged with assault after he got rough with his baby mama during a celebrity basketball game in Miami.
The Coral Gables Police Department announced Davis’s arrest on Tuesday, after a viral video showed the champion boxer snatching his baby mama, Andretta, by her neck during an argument and dragging her out of a gym. The couple was in Miami to attend the Super Bowl.
“As a result of an ongoing investigation after being notified through social media and the victim, on February 1, 2020, (Davis) was observed battering his former girlfriend (with) whom have a child together,” Coral Gables police said in a statement to ESPN.
Prior to his arrest, Davis addressed the incident during an Instagram story, saying he didn’t assault his baby mama – he simply corrected her when she talked back to him and showed out in public.
“I never once hit her, yeah, I was aggressive and told her come on.. that’s the mother of my child. I would never hurt her,” Davis said.
Davis is undefeated as a professional boxer.
