Boxing champion Gervonta Davis was arrested Tuesday in Broward County after hitting a woman in the head, police say.

The 28-year-old was arrested in Parkland on a charge of domestic violence causing bodily harm, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Davis bonded out of jail Wednesday afternoon and was ordered to have no contact with the victim.

According to an arrest report, Davis hit the woman on the side of her head with a closed-hand slap and she suffered a cut on the inside of her upper lip.

Officials said Davis and the woman do not live together.
