At first Davis was a person of interest in the assault, however witnesses have come forward identifying the NBA star as the aggressor of the attack.

Witnesses told investigators that the victim tried to confront Davis after the NBA forward nearly struck him with his car. 

Davis proceeded to allegedly exit his car and physically attack the victim.

Davis is yet to comment on the attack.

Police will present the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to file felony charges against Davis, TMZ reported.

In February the Louisiana native was arrested on drug possession and distribution charges.

Police found 126grams of marijuana, a briefcase of $92,000 in cash, and a ledger in his hotel room in Maryland, according to ABC7.  

Despite the findings he posted a since-deleted video to Instagram to warn his followers to not believe online reports about the raid.

His attorney says the former basketball player maintains his innocence.    

Davis last played for the NBA in 2015. During his NBA career he played for the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Clippers.
