Glen 'Big Baby' Davis suspected in Hollywood assault - report
Things have gone from bad to worse on the legal front for Glen “Big Baby” Davis.
The former NBA standout and owner of a championship ring from his days with the Boston Celtics already faces criminal marijuana possession charges stemming from a bust in Maryland in March.
Now he’s in trouble in his home in California, where he might be facing an assault rap thanks to a nightclub incident that turned violent in Hollywood.
TMZ Sports reports that Davis is a suspect in a brutal beating April 8 in West Hollywood.
“We’re told cops believe Davis got into a physical altercation with a man outside of a West Hollywood nightclub on April 8 — and ultimately slammed the man down on the concrete,” TMZ said. “Davis allegedly fled the scene before cops arrived.
“Sources say the victim was hospitalized with multiple broken bones and a broken tooth and he was on a ventilator for a day. “
Davis had previously been identified as a “person of interest,” according to TMZ, but as more witnesses have come forward, that status has been upgraded to the point where prosecutors believe they can pin a felony assault charge on the former NBA star.
Police are expected to file those charges with the district attorney’s office in order to obtain a warrant for Davis’ arrest.
Davis himself has remained mum on the subject of the charges, refusing to speak to media.
Instead, he “celebrated” the 4/20 “holiday” Friday on Instagram:
TMZ initially reported that Davis had been seen near the scene of the crime “driving erratically.”
The report went on in more detail:
“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.”
It remains to be seen whether and how these criminal allegations intersect with the ongoing issues in Maryland.
