Police footage of Gervonta Davis’ arrested for an alleged domestic violence incident has been released.
‘Tank’ was taken into custody after local police responded to a domestic violence call at Davis’ Florida home in late 2022. His accuser was found with a cut on her lip which prompted authorities to place Davis under arrest. Weeks later, the woman recanted her statement and the charges were ultimately dropped.
Less than a year removed from the incident, footage of the arrest has been made available to the public.

At the time, Davis was in preparation for a bout with Héctor García. Despite the arrest, the bout moved forward as scheduled. ‘Tank’ scored a ninth-round technical knockout against Garcia. He would go on to add another impressive win to his resume in April, finishing Ryan Garcia in the seventh round of their critically-acclaimed superfight with a vicious body blow.
Gervonta Davis Violates House Arrest Sentence Following 2020 Hit-And-Run Incident
Unfortunately, the reported domestic dispute was far from the first time that Davis found himself on the wrong side of the law. In 2020, ‘Tank’ was involved in a hit-and-run incident that reportedly injured four people, including a pregnant woman. Facing seven years in prison, Davis was instead sentenced to three years probation, 200 hours of community service, and 90 days of house arrest.
On June 1, it was reported that Davis had been taken into custody for an impromptu hearing after violating his house arrest. As a result, he would be required to spend the remainder of his 90-day sentence behind bars.
Despite his legal troubles, Gervonta Davis has emerged as one of the biggest names in professional boxing. Boasting a record of 29-0, ‘Tank’ has earned the ability to call his shot in the squared circle and is staring down the barrel of some pretty big matchups. Bouts with Vasiliy Lomachenko, Devin Haney, and Shakur Stevenson loom large, but those big-money fights will hinge upon his ability to stay out of trouble going forward.
