BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A judge is allowing suspended LSU football player Drake Davis to be released from jail, but under certain circumstances. Davis was released around 8:20 p.m. Friday night.

The judge made the announcement Friday morning during Davis' bond hearing.

Judge Donald Johnson is authorizing Davis to return to the community under certain conditions, which include accepting lawyers' recommendations that he resides with family 50 miles from LSU campus.

Davis is to not be enrolled at LSU as a student after his release and to not have contact with the victim. A spokesperson with the school confirmed Friday that Davis is no longer enrolled at LSU. Otherwise, his bond will be revoked, according to the judge.

The judge ordered Davis to not have access to social media or internet access.

The judge set a bond on each of the five counts to $5,000 per charge.

In regards to his two counts of pornography involving juveniles, the judge set a $7,500 bond per charge, totaling to $15,000.

“When you find yourself in a hole, you need to stop digging,” according to Judge Richard Anderson.

Davis appeared in court Wednesday for a status hearing in his battery allegations case. In that case, he was charged with two counts of battery of a dating partner and two counts of violating a protective order.

Davis had been held in jail with no bond since his arrest on Sunday. According to the latest report, Davis allegedly attacked the victim on August 26 and September 15.

This is the second time Drake has been arrested and charged with battery of a dating partner in the past few weeks.
