Two-weight boxing world champion Gervonta Davis is facing one of the biggest challenges of his career...the law.
The WBA super featherweight and WBA "regular" lightweight champion was indicted earlier this week in the Circuit Court of Baltimore, Maryland, on 14 counts of traffic violations stemming from hit-and-run crash last fall.
Baltimore City State's Attorney Office reported that Davis was driving a 2020 Lamborghini Uris and ran a red light at 1:47 a.m. ET and struck the front passenger side of a 2004 Toyota Solara. Video from a nearby convenience store showed Davis' car collide into the store's fence and became "disabled."
Security camera footage showed that a black Camaro arrived at the scene shortly after the crash and passengers began transferring items from the Lamborghini to the Camaro. Davis and an unidentified female were captured on camera fleeing the scene in the Camaro just moments after the incident.
According to the report, The Solara's airbags deployed and the vehicle was "destroyed." The driver and three passengers of the car were transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma as a result of the crash with Gil Amaral, an attorney for the injured driver, who told The Baltimore Sun his client suffered "fairly serious injuries" that have complicated the recovery.
"Fortunately, the victims in this case were able to survive the alleged hit and run collision with recoverable injuries despite the potential for a far worse scenario," State Attorney Marillyn Mosby said in a statement. "My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions actions put innocent lives in jeopardy."
Charges for leaving the scene a car crash could result in felony charges with a potential sentence of up to five years in prison.
