Boxing Champion Faces Charges for Assault in Tysons Galleria

Fairfax County police have issued an arrest warrant for Gervonta Davis, World Boxing Association champion in the 130-pound category, after police say Davis assaulted a man near a Tysons Galleria ATM on Feb. 17.

Police said an unidentified victim reported Davis as his attacker. Davis allegedly became belligerent. After the victim testified to the magistrate, a warrant was issued for Davis’ arrest.

Davis faces a misdemeanor assault and battery charge but the Washington Post reported that Davis has not responded to the warrant.

This is not the first or even second time Davis has been arrested following a physical altercation.

After the initial story broke, Davis tweeted vague disapproval of the news coverage.
