Glen “Big Baby” Davis is no stranger to controversy. The former NBA player was already arrested once this year. Back in February, he was arrested for drug possession and distribution. New allegations claim that Glen Davis hit a man with his car and then threw him to the ground.
Davis played eight seasons in the NBA. He most recently spent parts of two seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014-15. He spent his best seasons with the Boston Celtics, which took him in the early second round of the 2007 NBA Draft, and the Orlando Magic. Davis previously starred at LSU, leading the Tigers to the 2006 Final Four.
Glen Davis is a “person of interest” stemming from an incident Sunday.
TMZ Sports first reported on the new allegations against Davis. From its report:
Law enforcement sources tell us … witnesses have told investigators Davis was driving erratically in a parking lot Sunday evening near Factory nightclub in West Hollywood.
After nearly striking a man with his vehicle, witnesses say the victim tried to confront Davis … but Davis got out of his car and things turned physical.
We’re told witnesses say Davis threw the man to the ground — and eventually left the scene.
Emergency responders were called to the scene. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he was treated for fractures in his face and ribs as well as a broken tooth.
This comes on the heel of the February Glen Davis arrest. From WMAR in Baltimore:
“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” said Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber, “In addition to that there was a brief case that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”
The ledger was of names of people of who owed money along with baggies for individual packaging of a quarter pound of marijuana.
Big Baby may want to lay low for a while. It’s been a tumultuous few months for him.
