Prosecutors have dropped five of seven charges against Toronto Raptors’ guard Terence Davis II, stemming from an incident in October 2020 where Davis was alleged to have struck his ex-girlfriend in the face and break her phone inside of a Manhattan hotel.

Davis was initially charged with seven criminal counts: aggravated harassment, assault, criminal mischief, attempted assault, harassment, endangering the welfare of a child and another assault.

The five charges that were dropped are in relation to assaultive conduct. However, the judge granted an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal (Family ACD), which applies to the two remaining counts: Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Criminal Mischief in the 4th Degree, according to Blake Murphy. 

“The full order of protection between Davis and the alleged victim remains in place, subject to any determinations from family court regarding visitation, custody, etc.,” Murphy wrote on Twitter.

Going forward, the judge told Davis: “As long as you stay out of trouble for the next year, this matter against you will automatically be dismissed, your record will be sealed.”

Regarding the NBA, The NBA/NBPA process remains ongoing with respect to Davis. There has been no official comment from NBA or the Toronto Raptors at this time.
