BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU wide receiver Drake Davis once again finds himself on the wrong side of the law.

Court documents state Davis, 22, was arrested Wednesday by the LSU Police Department and is charged with violating protective orders.

Officers said Davis used a cell phone to call a woman who had a restraining order filed against him back in September.

According to the arrest warrant, Davis is verbally abusive to the victim in their communications.

This is Davis’s third arrest since September.

He was originally charged with battery, but the victim retracted her story. After that, he was charged with possession of child pornography.

Davis is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. Bond has not been set on the new charge.


Davis went before Judge Donald Johnson on Sept. 21, 2018 for a status hearing on two counts of battery of a dating partner and was released from jail with certain conditions.

He was ordered to not be in possession of or use a smart phone, the internet, or smart devices. He was further ordered to not have any contact with the victim in the case.

In early January, the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office formally filed charges against Davis in connection with incidents that happened in August and September of 2018.
