Boxer, Gervonta Davis jailed for two months after violating 90-day home detention order after hit-and-run crash


American boxer, Gervonta Davis has been sent to prison for the next two months for violating the terms of a sentence that initially saw him avoid jail time.

On May 5, the 28-year-old American lightweight boxing star was sentenced over his hit-and-run crash which injured four people and many expected him to be jailed as a result.

However, after he pled guilty to four traffic offences in a plea deal, he avoided a prison term and was instead been sentenced to 90 days of home detention, three years’ probation, plus 200 hours of community service – including mandated sessions with Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Baltimore sheriff’s deputies took the lightweight boxing star into custody following a court hearing on Thursday, in which Judge Althea Handy ordered Davis to spend the remainder of his three-month house arrest sentence in jail, according to the Baltimore Banner.

Davis was taken into custody after allegedly serving his house arrest at the Four Seasons Hotel and at a $3.4 million penthouse he purchased in South Baltimore, according to the Baltimore Banner.

Meanwhile, Davis was supposed to serve his house arrest at trainer Calvin Ford’s house in Baltimore.

When Judge Handy’s first ruling came down, she rejected the idea of Davis serving his house arrest at his home in Florida, per the Baltimore Banner.

‘The reason I didn’t want him in Florida is because this was not a holiday,’ said Handy, who later added that she did not want Davis to be sitting by the pool or hanging out at the spa.

‘He was serving time. And I was being considerate enough to let him do it on home detention.’

Davis reportedly listed his trainer’s address on the court paperwork. He did not ask Handy to sign off on any other location in Baltimore.

On Thursday, June 1, an impromptu hearing was called after he allegedly violated the terms of his house arrest order and he’s now been ordered to serve the rest of his 90-day sentence behind bars.

It has not yet been revealed specifically how he violated it.

The hit-and-run incident that the case centres around occurred in November 2020, just days after Davis’ impressive KO win over Leo Santa Cruz.

It was alleged that the boxer was driving a Lamborghini Urus SUV at around 1:50am when he ran a red light and struck a Toyota Solara, injuring four people.

One of those people was Jyair Smith, who was pregnant at the time and said she sustained a major knee injury that will affect her for the rest of her life.

She spoke at his sentencing hearing, per the Baltimore Sun.

‘Since Nov. 5, 2020, I been suffering damage to my knee. They told me I would never be the same,’ Smith said.

‘It’s hard to see this go so long, and I never received an apology. I feel like I don’t matter. Imagine being 18 years old, and the doctor saying you’ll never be the same.’
