Home Football Charges dismissed, reduced in BYU CB's case

Charges dismissed, reduced in BYU CB’s case


The road ahead is looking a lot brighter for BYU Cougars cornerback Michael Davis. According to Jay Drew of The Salt Like Tribune, one charge has been reduced and the other dropped in a case against Davis that revolves around a simple parking dispute in Provo.

Davis, a junior from California, pleaded no contest earlier this month to a Class B misdemeanor assault charge, down from the initial charge of a Class A misdemeanor. A Class B misdemeanor riot charge was thrown out entirely.

Now, all that Davis needs to do is pay a $250 fine plus interest by April 1, 2016. He also received a year’s probation and attend anger management. He has already done 30 hours of community service.

Back in July, Davis and a man close to his age got into an argument over a parking space at a local apartment complex. The man arguing with Davis called a towing company to have Davis’ car removed from said space, and a physical altercation ensued. Davis was issued a citation, but was not arrested.

He can now focus on football, having started all five of BYU’s games this season. The Cougars are 3-2 on the year and Davis has posted 69 tackles and seven pass breakups since arriving in 2013. Hopefully, he continues to show improvement this season.

BYU’s next game comes against the AAC’s East Carolina Pirates in Provo on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
