Fred Davis has had some offseason.
And the fireworks could continue for some time.
If the Washington Redskins tight end is considering a second career in law, he’s got himself off to a head start. That is because Davis is serving as his own counsel in a civil suit that has played out in Washington, D.C. Washingtonian magazine has all the details and there is a lot to chew on here.
According to the reports, Makini Chaka, a 33-year-old woman, filed a civil complaint against Davis after she claims he poured juice on her head and busted her lip at a nightclub. Chaka has accused Davis of threatening to kill her, harassing her and more.
Davis has no formal legal training and he basically claims Chaka is attempting to shake him down for money. A trial date has been set for March 2013 and without shelling out some money for a defense attorney, Davis could risk losing some here.
Davis and his occasional bodyguard Stewart Prince have accused Chaka of being a “pimpette” and arranging sex with women for athletes and high-profile clients. Chaka denies that and calls herself a “celebrity broker” that puts together parties.
Police have not charged Davis with anything and there has been a lot of wrangling in court, including an argument between Davis and Chaka before the judge whether or not the woman had her hand on a man’s genitals in a photo. Yes, it’s been some kind of offseason for Davis.
