Gervonta Davis complains about judge from jail
By Adam Baskin: The incarcerated ‘face of boxing,’ Gervonta Davis, took to Instagram from jail to complain about the judge that put him in the joint, saying that she’s “mad” that he bought an apartment during his 90-day home detention.
It’s unclear what purpose Gervonta is trying to accomplish by complaining about the judge now. Does he think that his jail sentence will be revoked and he’ll be able to return to the luxury apartment he recently purchased?
The judge obviously wanted Tank Davis to take accountability for what he did and not enjoy himself on vacation in an expensive penthouse apartment overlooking the city.
You can argue that she was letting him off light, to begin with, by giving him the option of 90-day house arrest at his trainer Ford’s home. Even if it was only a one-bedroom apartment, it’s better than staying in jail.
Unfortunately for the 28-year-old, he broke the rules of what the judge had asked him to do by not staying at his trainer Calvin Ford’s home and purchasing a $3.4 million penthouse apartment and was staying there.
Tank had been given a 90-day sentence for his 2020 hit & run car crash that injured four people. He reportedly left the scene. Instead of the Baltimore judge giving the popular boxer a jail term, she said he could do 90 days of home detention, and he would need to stay at his trainer Ford’s home.
The real question is whether Gervonta was confused about what the judges’ instructions were for his 90-day home detention.
“This judge is crazy, bro. She locked me up because, basically, I bought a property. I get everything in my power to listen to my lawyers for home detention. I listened to everybody, to the team,” said Gervonta Davis on Instagram live from his jail after breaking his 90-day house arrest.
“She’s mad that I bought a property,” Tank continued with his rant about the judge that sentenced him to jail. “That’s why I’m sitting in jail.
“She said she wanted me to be in my apartment, a one-bedroom apartment, and I couldn’t even take that. She wanted me to stay in a one-bedroom. I couldn’t even have my kids come visit me.
“I just wanted to spread light on this situation because I feel like she’s taking advantage of me. The things that she’s doing now is not right,” said Tank Davis from jail.
