Ex-NBA player Glen Davis charged with felony assault, could face up to seven years in prison: report


Former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis has reportedly been charged with felony assault stemming from his arrest last month in California.

TMZ reported Wednesday that Davis, 32, could face up to seven years in prison if convicted of felony assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury.

The ex-Celtics big man was arrested after allegedly throwing a man to the ground during an April altercation in a West Hollywood parking lot. The victim was hospitalized with facial fractures, a broken tooth and broken ribs, per TMZ.

This isn’t Davis’ first run-in with the law this year. In February, he was arrested and indicted on seven counts of drug possession and distribution after police found 126 grams of marijuana and a briefcase containing $92,000 in a hotel room in Aberdeen, Maryland.

Davis last played with the Clippers in 2015, wrapping up an eight-year NBA career that took him from Boston to Orlando and ultimately Los Angeles. He gained fame during his rookie season as part of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team with its “Big Three” of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett.

In January, Davis signed on to be a team co-captain in the BIG3 league this summer.
