Former local pro tight end Fred Davis is wanted by D.C. police on a domestic violence simple assault charge, the Metropolitan Police Department announced today.
The incident occurred around 3 a.m. on June 2 in Adams Morgan, on the 2400 block of 18th Street NW. Police released no further details on the incident, but authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating Davis, who they described as a 6’8″ or 6’9″ black male in his late 20s, weighing about 250 pounds. He lives in Leesburg, Va.
In February, Davis was suspended from the NFL indefinitely for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. A day later, the Fairfax County Police Department charged him with driving under the influence. Davis was also involved in a legal dispute with a woman who claimed that he poured a juice pitcher on her at a D.C. nightclub.
Anyone with any information on Davis’ whereabouts is asked to call police at 202-727-9099 or text 50411. Cops are offering a $1,000 reward.
