Former Mayweather Employee Accuses Boxer of Assault

A former member of Floyd Mayweather’s entourage has accused the boxer of attempting to run him off the road.

Quincey Williams was a regular member of Mayweather’s entourage until a financial falling out in August 2009. That same month, Williams was shot outside a Las Vegas skating rink by Ocie Harris, a bodyguard for Mayweather. Harris has since been charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Williams’ police report states that his relationship with Mayweather went sour after his quit his entourage duties over low pay. The hostilities escalated after Williams told Mayweather via text that he wished he would be defeated in the ring.

Williams states he was driving his red Mazda sedan in Las Vegas when Mayweather “tried to run him off the road” with a white Bentley. There were no injuries or witnesses. Yesterday, Williams told the press that Mayweather’s money makes him believe he is above the law.

“He feels like he’s entitled to do whatever he wants and get away with it,” Williams told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He wants to walk around and intimidate people like he’s some type of thug.”

Prosecutors are currently  investigating Williams’ claims on the grounds of assault with a deadly weapon. If an arrest warrant is issued, Floyd Mayweather could lose the bail privileges from his separate domestic violence case.

At press time, Las Vegas authorities are also reviewing a battery claim made against Mayweather by a security guard.

I bet Quincey Williams regrets that text now. We all know Mayweather is protective of his undefeated record. But who knew dissing him about it could make him this irate?

Normally, cases like this I dismiss as disgruntled employees. When I interviewed Mayweather last year, he expressed to me how burdensome it is to have so many hanger-ons around him. The obvious solution would be to drop some of them, and maybe he started doing just that with Williams.

There’s no problem in doing that, but it’s the shooting I can’t wrap my head around. Did Williams steal something before he left? Threaten to expose some Mayweather secrets to the press? We all know how vindictive people get, and being that Williams has known Mayweather since 1996, he may have some actual dirt to spill. Now that it under no circumstances justifies the shooting. But I can understand how that situation could have gotten out of hand very quickly if there was an extortion attempt.

In the aforementioned interview, Mayweather also told me how his camp was “looking for” Freck Billionaire, because he allegedly stole a high-priced watch before reneging on a contract offer. Mayweather never implied violence if he happened to find Billionaire. At the same time, I know what would be going through my mind if I were in his shoes, and didn’t enlist the police to get back my property.

You really have to wonder what Mayweather will do with himself after he’s done with boxing. It’s not a promising path he’s headed down.
