Gervonta Davis receives 90 days of home detention for hit-and-run in 2020, per reports

Gervonta Davis will have to serve 90 days of home detention for a 2020 hit-and-run in his hometown of Baltimore, according to multiple reports.

The lightweight contender received a prison sentence of two-plus years on Friday but the sentence was suspended, meaning he won’t have to spend time behind bars if he fulfills other requirements. He also received 200 hours of community service and three years probation from Judge Althea M. Handy in Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Handy allowed Davis to avoid jail time even though she was critical of his refusal to apologize to one of those injured in the crash.

“Three words: ‘I am sorry.'” she said, according to The Baltimore Banner. “And he was not man enough to do that. … He’s shown absolutely no remorse.”

Davis reportedly will serve his detention at the home of his trainer, Calvin Ford.

The unbeaten fighter pleaded guilty last February to four of the 14 misdemeanor counts for which he was indicted, which allowed him to avoid a trial.

The four counts were leaving the scene of an accident in which someone was injured, failure to report property damage, driving without a valid license and running a red light, according to ESPN

The accident occurred in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, 2020.

Davis reportedly left a restaurant in downtown Baltimore in a Lamborghini Urus SUV, following a police escort. However, he split from the escort, ran a red light on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and struck a Toyota Solara, which a report says was “destroyed.”

Four adults were in the Toyota, all of whom were transported to a nearby hospital. The driver evidently suffered the most-serious injuries, although not to the level required for Davis to be charged with a felony.

“My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions put innocent lives in jeopardy.”

Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) had knocked out Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round only a few days before the accident. He has fought five times since, including a seventh-round knockout of Ryan Garcia in a high-profile fight on April 22.

Davis has had a number of brushes with the law. Here’s a timeline:

2017 – Arrested for assaulting a childhood friend but charges were later dropped.

2018 – Arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for his role in an alleged street fight.
