He was arrested for lewd acts proposals to a child under 16, violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act, and possession of a firearm while committing of a felony.

Davis is paid by several Oklahoma City metro schools to play Santa Claus around the holidays. He also is a coach for a co-ed baseball team for kids six years and younger.
