Toronto Raptors rookie Terence Davis has been arrested in New York City after allegedly assaulting a woman, according to the New York Post. Davis comes from a good season with the Raptors where he played all 72 regular-season games with the Canadian team.
TMZ Sports add that the woman in question is Davis' ex-girlfriend and the player allegedly punched her in the face repeatedly before the police made an act of presence to put the shooting guard under custody.
Law enforcement sources tell us Davis was staying with his ex-girlfriend at the Beekman Tower in Midtown Manhattan, NY ... when the two got into an argument.
Unclear what prompted the dispute ... but our sources say things got out of hand quickly -- with Davis allegedly punching the woman in the face REPEATEDLY.
We're told the altercation escalated even further after Davis' ex-GF refused to stop filming the NBA player with her phone ... so our sources say Davis grabbed it and shattered its screen.
We're told police were eventually called to the scene ... where they arrested the 23-year-old NBA player, booking him on misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges.
Meanwhile, our sources say Davis' ex-GF was taken to the hospital after complaining of swelling and pain in her left eye. We're told she was treated for her injuries and released.
The Toronto Raptors said in a statement provided to CP24 that the team is “aware of the reports and are seeking more information.”
After going undrafted from Ole Miss, Davis had a pretty good season, getting named to the league’s All-Rookie Second Team. He averaged 7.5 points per game with the Canadians.
This won't help him or his career and now fans are waiting to see what the decision the Raptors are going to make on this misfortunate situation.
