Former NBA player Glen "Big Baby" Davis was once arrested at a hotel in a suburb of Baltimore for carrying 126 grams of marijuana and about $92,164 in cash. According to the police report filed in April 2018, he was charged with possession and intent to distribute.
When the one-time NBA champion was caught, Big Baby tried to claim that he was innocent, and he did this by posting a video of him munching on a Popeyes chicken meal while flashing his cash and championship ring. The footage was all-around social media in 2018, but it has unfortunately been removed.
However, as expected, the internet kept receipts like it always does.
"Don't believe all that s— on the Internet," Davis said while eating Popeyes chicken in what looks like his private plane. "I will have my day in court. They just mad 'cause a black man got money, man. Just trying to keep a black man down, man. My s— legal, man. A lot of jump shots. A whole lot of jump shots," he added.
Big Baby avoids jail time.
The former Celtic reportedly avoided jail time on his drug charges by paying $15,000 in fines. His attorney Brandon Mead said that prosecutors dismissed the charges right after Davis paid his fine.
"They recovered 126 grams of marijuana," Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber said. "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," the Lieutenant added.
What is Big Baby up to now?
Besides probably munching on Popeyes now and then, Davis seems to be frequently active on social media. According to his Instagram bio, he's now a comedian and has a rap business. Big Baby continues to use his iconic video of him munching on Popeyes chicken for engagement on his Instagram and TikTok platforms.
Big Baby is also one of those former players who speak out about the NBA and the issues happening around the league. Last July, he called out Kyrie Irving for his infamous act of stomping on the Celtics logo. He also got into an altercation with Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson for disrespecting Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Mcgruder in February 2021.
Whether he's posting videos of himself munching or going at it with the NBA players today, Davis continues to make the headlines as much as he did in his playing days.
