LSU reportedly has kicked suspended receiver Drake Davis off the football team after he was arrested on battery charges.

Brody Miller of the Times-Picayune reported the news.

Davis has been arrested twice on battery charges in the last month. He was suspended after an Aug. 17 arrest and was arrested again over the weekend and charged with battery on a dating partner.

The woman involved said Davis pushed her on a couch during an Aug. 26 argument. She suffered an injury to her lower leg and woke up the following morning with a black eye, though it's unclear if Davis did it. The woman said she did not know how the black eye happened.

A witness later told police the woman sent her text message evidence of the incident, saying Davis slapped her. 

The charges from his original case stem from allegations of violence against his ex-girlfriend, who said Davis hit her four times during their relationship.

Davis was heading into his junior season at LSU. He is currently being held without bond.
