LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) - As the District begins to direct its full focus on the Washington Redskins, the lack of Free Agency acquisitions (and money to make them) has forced a fan base to fix its gaze on other nuances of the team.
Like the civil suit tight end Fred Davis finds himself locked in.
The suit brought to D.C. Superior Court by Makini R. Chaka, claims during a party at Josephine Nightclub on Jan. 6, 2011, Davis dumped juice on Chaka and threw an empty pitcher at her head, injuring her lip.
Davis, who went to court for the two-year-old nightclub incident on Monday, tells a different story.
While copping to throwing the juice on Chaka, Davis insists it was in retaliation to her tossing a drink on him, per Luke Mullins of the Washingtonian.
Just a little background to help set the scene: according to Mullins’ report, Chaka – a 34-year-old Baltimore native – calls herself a “celebrity broker” who arranges parties for athletes and celebrities.
She is seeking more than $350,000 in punitive damages from Davis, demanding compensation for medical bills, emotional distress and property damage – a result of her suede boots being ruined from the “acid in the juice” – as the report details.
Chaka also claims the negative attention caused her to lose clients.
“Fred Davis ruined my entire business,” she told the judge. “I lost everything.”
The extent of ‘everything’ as she outlined in the proceedings, was the $60,000 to $70,000 she earned annually from her celebrity dealings.
“No one wanted to do business with me,” she said.
Whether it’s fair to claim Davis caused her to lose business over a civil suit that Chaka herself, brought to the media’s attention is up to the judge to decide.
But perhaps the most intriguing nugget to come from the case Monday, was a revelation about Davis’ affinity for a particular type of woman.
“He has a thing for Asian [women],” Chaka told the judge.
If there’s any shred of truth to be taken from this whole ordeal, I would hope his love for Asian women really does run deep.
As deep as the Yangtze.
Let’s catch up over a game of #AONO sometime, Fred.
