Jason Davis sat down with X17online to chat about his family's attempted intervention over the holidays, and I must say, it's quite fascinating to hear the oil heir open up about how Tom Arnold and his brother Alexander Davis tore up his apartment with a baseball bat and tried to drag him to rehab!
Jason's grandfather is the late oil tycoon Marvin Davis, who ran Davis Petroleum (a company founded by his father Jack) and owned everything from 20th Century Fox to the Denver Broncos. Both Jason and his brother Brandon have reportedly struggled with substance abuse in the past, and this isn't Jason's first brush with rehab.
Jason tells X17online that it all began on Christmas Eve, when he didn't show up at his family's house for a holiday gathering. Apparently this became a cause for concern, because on January 3, he claims that Tom and his brother showed up to his Los Angeles residence and assaulted him and his girlfriend before dragging him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and trying to have him held against his will.
Jason says that around 11:42am, Tom and Alexander burst through his bedroom door, and threatened him and his girlfriend. Jason tells X17online exclusively:
- "First they shake my girlfriend and pull her off the couch and start saying, 'You're a wh*re, you're a drug addict, you're causing all this crap' and then Tom swings the baseball bat at her. Tom takes the bat and goes 'Wake the f*ck up!' and my brother pulls me out of bed [and] they both throw me to the floor and say, 'Guess what, you're going to rehab.' ... They were trying to hold me against my will and they said to me, 'We're going to try to hold you, we're going to forge your signature, we're going to do all this crap.'"
Jason added that the two men dragged him through the apartment, injuring his foot and scraping his back. Jason tells X17online:
- "They took their foot, they punched down on [my foot], I fell again and then my brother picked up my foot [and they] dragged me across the floor. I was able to lift myself up on that couch, and I was screaming because I was in pain."
Jason mocked Tom for trying to be a hero, stating, "If that was an emergency intervention, then just consider him Adolf Hitler." Jason says his girlfriend went to the neighbors' apartment to call the police, as she was "scared for her life," but Jason says that after officers showed up, his brother wouldn't allow her to retrieve her cell phone. He says that his brother confronted his girlfriend, telling her that he read her texts, and then he accused her of selling drugs with Jason.
Jason told us, "The fact a family will sell their own child out for media attention and show my issues - if there are any - to the public, I mean that's bullsh*t." Davis hired attorney Gloria Allred and checked out of the hospital the next day, and that's when he told us his side of the story.
While Jason seems furious over the attempted intervention (which was approved by his mother Nancy), we have wonder why he's fighting it so hard. Perhaps his family is concerned that he's just another lost rich kid heading down the same path as Casey Johnson? I mean, given his sing along at the end of the interview (click on the 5:15 mark to see the delightfulness), we'd say his family probably does have a pretty good reason to question his well being...
Oh, and stay tuned for the second part of the interview where Jason spills all sorts of dirt on his brother Brandon...it's just as juicy as the details Patrick is promising to reveal about Lindsay...
Kids, this is why drugs are NEVER a good idea.
