LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has announced that Ronald Glen Davis (dob 1/1/86) of Tarzana pleaded “No Contest” on 12/11/19 for one felony count of battery with serious bodily injury.
The former NBA player for the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Clippers had assaulted a man outside a West Hollywood club last year.
“On April 8, 2018, Davis threw a victim into a wall during an altercation outside of a club in the 600 block of Robertson Boulevard,” said prosecutors. Case SA098144 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, West Hollywood Station.
Wikipedia has lent an historic image as to the his size and strength: When 15 years old, “Big Baby” Davis attended a 2001 basketball camp run by LSU alumnus and future Boston Celtic teammate Shaquille O’Neal. O’Neal challenged Davis to a friendly wrestling match, resulting in Shaq’s 7 ft 1 in., 325 lb. frame being lifted and body-slammed to the ground.
As a result of the 2018 injurious body toss outside the West Hollywood club, Davis will need to satisfy a required 320 hours of community service, along with $104,479 in restitution. Upon completion of the community labor, the battery count will be reduced to a misdemeanor.
As long as he breaks no other laws over the next year – he should have a favorable sentencing meeting on 12/15/20 before a judge at L.A. County Superior Court, Airport Branch.
