Floyd Mayweather May Face New Battery Charge From Security Guard

A security guard has filed a battery claim against boxer Floyd Mayweather following a Monday (November 15) confrontation over a parking violation.

A security guard has filed a battery claim against boxer Floyd Mayweather following a Monday (November 15) confrontation over a parking violation.

The alleged incident happened at Las Vegas’ affluent Southern Highlands community, where Mayweather resides. According to the filed police report, Mayweather became irate with an unidentified guard who issued him a parking citation.

Mayweather is alleged to have poked the guard in the face several times, resulting in a police report on suspected misdemeanor battery. The case will be reviewed to access if criminal charges are warranted. The review will be completed without Mayweather’s side, as no one answered at his residence when police attempted an interview yesterday.

The linear welterweight champion’s next court date will be on January 24, when he faces four felony and four misdemeanor charges for a domestic violence incident involving his child’s mother, Josie Harris, and their two sons.

At press time, Mayweather remains free in that case on a $31,000 bail.

**********************************************************************

Misdemeanor battery? Those must have been some hard pokes. Security guards have it rough: no weapon, and no real authority to handle someone when they get out of line. If this did happen, you can be sure Mayweather only took it there because it was a security guard and not a police officer.

Mayweather wasn’t even arrested because there was no evidence or witnesses to really back up the guard’s claim. More than likely this gets thrown out. But it’s more bad publicity for Mayweather in the wake of another impressive performance in the ring by Manny Pacquiao.

I really wish we could take Floyd’s mentality from his super-featherweight and lightweight days, and put it in his brain today.
