Gervonta Davis has been charged in his alleged hit-and-run incident in Baltimore which left four people injured.
The Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s office charged the fan-favorite boxer with 14 counts of traffic violations from the November incident. The most serious charge is Davis allegedly fled the scene of an accident involving bodily injury (four counts), along with driving on the highway while his license was suspended and revoke. If he is found guilty on all 14 charges, Davis will face a maximum of 7 years and 55 days in prison.
The following are a detailed list of charges presented against the boxer, according to a press release from the State’s Attorney’s office on Monday (via boxingscene):
1. Four counts of Failure to immediately return and remain at scene of accident involving bodily injury (1 year)
2. Failure of driver involved in accident to render reasonable assistance to injured person (60 days)
3. Failure of vehicle driver involved in accident to furnish req. ID and license (60 days)
4. Failure of vehicle driver involved in accident to exhibit license to police (60 days)
5. Failure of vehicle driver involved in accident to report to nearest police (60 days)
6. Failure of vehicle driver in accident to locate and notify owner of unattended property of damage (60 days)
7. Failure of vehicle driver in accident to furnish required ID information in writing on unattended vehicle property (60 days)
8. Person driving motor vehicle on highway on suspended license and privilege (1 year)
9. Person driving motor vehicle on highway on revoked license and privilege (1 year)
10. Driving motor vehicle on highway without required license and authorization (60 days)
11. Driver fail to stop at steady circular red signal.
Due to the fact none of the four people had life-threatening injuries, Gervonta Davis’ charges were classified as misdemeanors and not felony charges.
“Fortunately, the victims in this case were able to survive this alleged hit-and-run collision with recoverable injuries despite the potential for a far worse scenario,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby in a statement. “My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions put innocent lives in jeopardy.”
As of right now, no court date have been assigned but the boxing career of Davis is likely on pause until the case is over.
