The NBA defines domestic violence as ‘behavior that intimidates, manipulates, humiliates, isolates, frightens, terrorizes, coerces, threatens, injures, or places another person in fear of bodily harm’ and violators face fines, suspension, dismissal or disqualification.  

On Twitter fans called for the Raptors to cut Davis following the arrest. 

This summer Toronto Raptors assistant coach Adrian Griffin faced accusations of domestic violence made by his ex-wife on social media, and the team stood by him.

Audrey Griffin shared on Twitter that Adrian had repeatedly abused her by choking her, throwing her into a wall with such force that left a hole, and dragged her across a lawn when she was pregnant.

He denied the allegations in a statement released by the Raptors in August.

‘This morning, accusations were made against me on social media by my former wife that I vehemently deny,’ Adrian Griffin said in a statement released by the Raptors.

‘We are involved in a longstanding legal dispute over alimony and child support arrangements. I am disappointed to have to address false accusations in this way, and I apologize for any distraction this has potentially caused for our team at this important time.’

The Raptors said that they spoke with Griffin and he ‘flatly denied the allegations in the post’ and said they’d ‘support the process’ as Griffin and his ex-wife settled the matter.
