UPDATE: Prosecutors Drop Gervonta Davis’ Domestic Battery Charge

TMZ Sports confirmed that Vanessa Posso, one of the mothers of Davis’ children, ultimately declined to press charges in the case. It was formally dismissed on Monday (May 22), according to the outlet.

“While the emotions were high, I made an unnecessary call to law enforcement in an intense moment while I was frantic,” Posso wrote on social media following the drama.

Vanessa and Gervonta previously “agreed that the defendant had to complete an anger management course and parenting class,” prosecutors reportedly said. Davis has since completed the courses, per TMZ.
