The City Attorney’s Office told TMZ that the ‘prior conviction’ folded into his new charge stemmed from a 2017 incident where he was charged with two counts of spousal battery.

‘He pled no contest to one count, and had to serve 180 days in jail, complete a 52-week Domestic Violence Treatment Program, pay a fine and was ordered to stay away from the victim,’ the outlet reported. 

The second count was dismissed and he was placed on ’36 months summary probation.’

A few weeks back, Tavarez was arrested several days after an incident where he lashed out at his girlfriend, pushing her so hard she fell and hit her head. The woman’s injuries resulted in a concussion.
