Report: Big Baby charged with felony assault in nightclub altercation reported Wednesday that ex-Celtic Glen "Big Baby" Davis has been charged with felony assault after being arrested in West Hollywood last month, and could be sentenced to seven years in prison if convicted.

According to the Web site, Davis was involved in an altercation outside a night club in which the alleged victim "was hospitalized with several major injuries including facial fractures, a broken tooth and broken ribs." The official charge reportedly is felony assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, which carries a possible seven-year sentence.

Davis, 32, broke into the NBA as a rookie with the Celtics' 2007-08 championship season. (He was drafted by Seattle, now the Oklahoma City Thunder, with the 35th overall pick in the 2007 draft and came to Boston in the Ray Allen trade.) He was dealt to the Magic in 2011 and, after being bought out by Orlando in Feburary 2014, signed with the Clippers (and ex-coach Doc Rivers) as a free agent. He played with Los Angeles through the 2014-15 season, and has been out of the league since then.

Davis was also arrested for drug possession and drug distribution last February in Maryland after police found 126 grams of marijuana and a briefcase containing $92,000 in cash inside his hotel room. Those charges are still pending.

'Big Baby' busted with 126 grams of pot, $92K in cash

Former Celtics forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis was arrested last month in a hotel room in Aberdeen, Maryland, with more than 126 grams of marijuana and more than $92,000 in cash.

Davis, 32, who played on the Celtics 2008 championship team was last in the NBA with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2015, was arrested Feb. 7 after the hotel owner at the Aberdeen Hampton Inn smelled marijuana coming from Davis' room, WMAR-TV in Baltimore reported.

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” Aberdeen Police Lt. William Reiber told WMAR. “In addition to that, there was a briefcase that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”

Davis is charged with seven counts of drug possession and distribution.

Police said the strains of marijuana were from a Los Angeles wholesaler that court records show Davis told police he was in business with.

He told officers he was visiting family in Maryland. Davis' attorney told WMAR the former Celtic (2007-11) adamantly maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court next month to clear his name.
