The home detention sentence is connected to a crash on Nov. 5, 2020. Davis was reportedly driving his Lamborghini when he ran a red light and hit another vehicle, according to the police report.
The report noted that the boxing champion and his passenger then fled the scene on foot. Surveillance footage and the victims in the other car later named Davis as the driver.
