Mayweather Found Not Guilty of Security Guard Harassment

Mayweather attorney Richard Wright argued on cross-examination that the guards were pressured to file the lawsuit by Southern Highlands. In January, the community filed a $10,000 lawsuit against Mayweather over his several security guard confrontations.

Floyd Mayweather has been acquitted of misdemeanor harassment charges stemming from an October 2010 incident where he allegedly threatened two security guards at his Las Vegas home.

The acquittal was made after Las Vegas Lady of the Peace Diana Sullivan ruled that the armed guards were not convincing that they feared for their lives.

The incident occurred when the guards, representing Mayweather’s Southern Highlands gated community, put parking tickets on several of Mayweather’s 29 vehicles.

“My homies have guns,” Mayweather is alleged to have responded. “If you want me to call them they’d come over here and take care of you.”

Mayweather will return to court November 4 to answer a misdemeanor battery charge for poking another Southern Highland security guard in the face. On December 21, an evidence hearing will be held regarding felony assault charges against his ex-girlfriend and children’s mother.
