According to the State Attorney's Office:

A Bay County jury found Enrique Arthur Davis guilty as charged of battery on a law

enforcement officer.

Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Hawkins told jurors in her closing argument that

Panama City Police Officer Eric Abraham, who was providing mutual aid during Spring Break,

saw Davis urinate on a car parked at nightclub on March 12. When Abraham approached Davis

and asked for his identification, Davis walked away. Abraham tried to stop him, but Davis spun

away and slammed his elbow into Abraham's face. Davis, a former running back for the

University of Mississippi, then ran and was arrested by other officers responding to the area.

Abraham suffered a concussion and torn rotator cuff in his shoulder that required

surgery.

Davis, 24, of 1408 Kentucky Ave., was convicted of battery on a law enforcement officer
