Sacramento Kings guard Terence Davis recently exceeded expectations after their game against the Brooklyn Nets. However, before catching the attention of the league, Davis made people's heads turn for darker reasons.

The Kings guard was arrested back in 2020 when he was still playing for the Toronto Raptors. Here's everything you need to know about the time Davis was sent behind bars.

Back in the 2020-21 NBA season, Terence Davis was arrested for beating up his partner. According to TMZ Sports, Davis' ex-girlfriend reported him to the police for hitting her during a lover's quarrel. The incident took place at the Beekman Tower located in Manhattan, New York.

Davis allegedly repeatedly hit his ex in the face and broke her phone while she was filming him, and the ex informed the police. He was detained on allegations of misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief back in October 2020. After a brutal assault, Davis' ex-girlfriend was sent to the hospital to treat her swollen left eye.

According to Bleacher Report, Terence Davis was released from behind bars sometime in February 2021. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that the New York District Attorney's Office dismissed the domestic assault allegations brought against Davis. He was able to find his way back into the league, however, the Raptors wanted no part of him and traded him to the Kings.

Since moving to Sacramento, Terence Davis has significantly improved his game. During his time in Toronto, Davis was a solid role player who could provide some threes and shots inside the paint. As a Raptor, Davis averaged 7.3 points and shot 38% from beyond the arc and 44% overall. On paper, his shooting efficiency is better in Toronto, but that's only because he took fewer shots.

Now, as a Kings player, Davis has shifted gears and is adding more significant scoring for his team. As of November 15, he is averaging 10 points and 3.1 rebounds. His shooting percentage slightly dropped to 35% from three and 43% overall, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Davis recently proved that he should be taking the shot more often than usual.

The Sacramento Kings overwhelmingly defeated the Brooklyn Nets 153-121 on Tuesday night. A huge reason for the Kings' impressive victory is thanks to Davis' impeccable showing. He was unstoppable the moment he checked into the second quarter of the game. Davis had 31 points, nine rebounds, four assists, and three steals. He was also scorching hot from the field, shooting an efficient 75% on 12-of-16 shooting. Seven of those shots came from long distance.

Davis is yet to beat his career-high of 35 points, which was recorded last season when the Kings played the Detroit Pistons on January 19. If he manages to consistently catch fire in their upcoming games, beating his record will easily be attainable.
