But the boxer was taken into custody on June 1 after Judge Althea Handy determined he didn’t have permission to move his place of residence on two different occasions.

Davis pleaded guilty to four charges relating to a hit-and-run incident from 2020
Davis pleaded guilty in February to four offenses; leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, driving with a revoked license, running a red light and failing to notify of property damage.
At approximately 2am on November 5, 2020, Davis – according to the prosecution – drove a Lamborghini under police escort after leaving a nightclub in downtown Baltimore.
At one time, he allegedly veered away from the convoy, running a red light and subsequently struck the passenger side of a 2004 Toyota Solara.
Inside was pregnant woman, Jyair Smith, alongside three other passengers. The prosecution alleged that David made eye contact with Smith but never came to her aid.
Davis, whose driver’s license was suspended, fled to the Four Seasons Hotel before Baltimore police officers arrived at the crash site, where occupants of the Toyota suffered bruises, cuts and sprains, according to police.

Davis was also sentenced to serve 200 hours of community service, and will be on probation for three years.
He was also arrested and charged with domestic violence in late December, before the woman who called police put out a statement on social media days later saying Davis ‘did not harm me or our daughter.’
His sentencing on May 5 came after his win over Ryan Garcia on April 22, where he won by a seventh-round knockout.
Davis is 29-0 for his career.
