Glen Davis is one of the most memorable NBA players of the last generation. He’s not remembered for his on-court heroics, but he’s remembered as a constant face with the Boston Celtics, who won the championship in 2008. Additionally, Davis has gained a lot of notoriety outside of his playing career.
Davis is currently being prosecuted by the US federal government for attempting to defraud the NBA Players’ Health and Welfare Benefit Plan out of millions of dollars. He is currently on bail for the charges against him. Other notable players involved in the scandal alongside Davis include Jamario Moon, Darius Miles and Terrance Williams, among others.
Davis is not yet in prison but is living his life as freely as possible despite being charged. “Big Baby” is a permanent attachment at Celtics games, and that’s something the government has noticed, as a federal judge said he’ll be penalized if he violates his plea again by attending another Boston Celtics game:
“You fouled in relation to basketball,” US District Judge Sarah Caproni told Davis. “If you get another foul, you go straight to the MDC from here [Manhattan Detention Complex] …You’ll get caught for going all over social media, so you have to abide by these rules.” (h/t YardBaker)
The terms of Big Baby’s plea limit his travel to either New York or California. Considering the Celtics game in Boston, Massachusetts, Davis violates his plea every time he goes to the TD Garden.
With the federal government taking notice, the former NBA champion needs to be careful about where he goes. There’s no harm in seeing the Celtics from New York or California, but if he travels back to Beantown, the Big Baby could see the inside of a jail cell sooner rather than later.
