Wide receiver Drake Davis arrested, charged with second-degree battery; suspended indefinitely

LSU wide receiver Drake Davis was arrested Friday night and charged with second degree battery, according to an East Baton Rouge Parish prison inmate list.

Bond had not been immediately set, according to the list. An LSU official confirmed the receiver has been suspended indefinitely from the team.

The arrest and charges were first reported by WBRZ in Baton Rouge.

According to an arrest report, Davis is alleged to have broken his ex-girlfriend’s ribs with a punch during an incident in April and then strangling her in June. The victim provided photographs supporting her claims of repeated domestic abuse, according to the warrant.

The final incident in June states that Davis went to the victim’s apartment after he was angry about a text message conversation. Once in the apartment, he strangled her, punched her in the stomach and ripped her earring out.

Davis also texted the woman, “I might kill you” and threatened violence on other occasions, according to the warrant.

According to the warrant, “an LSU official” brought the allegations to the attention of the LSU Police Department on Thursday, leading to Davis’ arrest.

Davis, a Baton Rouge native, attended the IMG Academy in Florida before enrolling at LSU. The junior has accrued four catches for 153 yards and two touchdowns during his first two collegiate seasons.
