Davis has faced legal troubles in the past. 

According to the New York Post, Davis was arrested for domestic violence in 2020 after being caught on video grabbing the mother of his child by the throat at a charity basketball game. The case was dropped nearly three years later on Dec. 13.

ESPN also reported that Davis is due in court in February on an unrelated hit-and-run case where he faces 14 charges.
