Gervonta Davis pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run case that took place 3 years ago in November 2020. The incident involved Davis colliding with another car carrying four passengers including a pregnant woman. On Thursday, the Baltimore court found Davis guilty of four traffic offenses which include fleeing the crime scene after injuring others, driving despite having a revoked license, breaking a red light, and not notifying about property damage. That accident took place on November 5, 2020, in the early morning at 2 am when Davis was driving his Lamborghini in Baltimore. Davis essentially ran a red light and hit a 2004 Toyota Solara on the side. After the accident, Davis didn’t take any responsibility and just drove away from the place.
The pregnant woman named Jyair Smith has even said that Davis made eye contact with her after the accident but didn’t come to help. Last year, Davis declined the plea of avoiding jail time by the Baltimore Circuit Court judge instead he was given house arrest for 60 days.
Davis’ hearing is currently scheduled to take place on May 5th, after his much-anticipated fight with Ryan Garcia. The fight between these two superstars has been on the table for a long time now. A few months back both verbally agreed to the fight and have been going at each other on social media ever since.

Davis will be fighting Ryan Garcia in April which is good news for his fans as the court trial would take place after that. However, the fight fans were concerned when the fighter was spotted last Sunday moving in a wheelchair.
Davis was watching the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Philadelphia Eagles in the wheelchair and fans were quick to notice that. When asked about it, Davis said: “S*** happens all the time. S*** be happening but I’m all right.“
After the incident, TMZ Sports made a tweet regarding Davis’ wheelchair spotting and mentioned that the fighter has suffered from an ankle injury. But Davis took his Twitter to call out TMZ for spreading false narratives.
