An LSU football player is facing serious allegations. Wide receiver Drake Davis was arrested on Friday on one count of second-degree battery.

According to a report from WBRZ, Davis is accused of punching his girlfriend so hard it broke one of her ribs, among other things. Police booked Davis in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison earlier this week.

The alleged incident dates back to April, though the report states the alleged crime was reported earlier this week.

From the WBRZ report.

Davis, who is listed on the LSU Football roster as being 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 220 pounds, is accused of breaking one of the woman’s ribs in April. He also is accused of strangling her, punching her and ripping an earring from her ear during an attack in June, according to the warrant.

Davis also allegedly texted the victim, "I might kill you."

Following the allegations, the LSU football program suspended Davis indefinitely. Davis played in two games for the Tigers during the 2017 season, catching three passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

Bond has not been set for the former four-star recruit.
