WBRZ reported the Tigers junior also texted the woman, “I might kill you.”
Davis and his ex-girlfriend, who is an LSU student as well, began dating in January 2017 and remained together up until this month. The 6’4″, 220-pound wideout allegedly physically assaulted her on at least four occasions during the course of their relationship.
According to Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune, Davis could face five years in prison and a fine up to $2,000 if convicted of second-degree battery.
Bond was not immediately set.
Davis caught three passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore last season.
