Here are the complete details on the Mayweather legal issues I reported earlier, Mayweather has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of threatening to cause bodily injury to another person, related to the alleged verbal altercation against two security guards.
The charges stem from an incident that took place on October 4th, 2010. Although, the security guards chose not to bring legal action immediately, there are new charges that were filed in Las Vegas Justice Court. These however, are separate from a November 4th, 2010 incident in which Mayweather was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly poking another security guard in the face with his index finger.
In the new case, the two security guards names were released as Aaron Ryan and Miguel Burgos who were citing vehicles parked in the street when of Mayweather’s gated community where he lives. Mayweather confronted them and allegedly said “My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they’d come over here and take care of you,” the police warrant stated.
The warrant also stated the security guards contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police on the same day but did not wish to have charges filed. Ryan then reconsidered that thought later in October.
The security guard in the November incident also was attempting to warn Mayweather about the number of cars parked at his home when he said the boxer verbally assaulted him with degrading comments and poked him in the face.
Mayweather, if a conviction is found, could face up to six-months in jail and $1,000 fine.
Mayweather has other legal problems on top of that as well, On September 9, 2010, the news broke that Mayweather was being sought by the police for questioning after his former girlfriend, Josie Harris, filed a domestic battery report against him. Harris has accused Mayweather of battery in the past, but those charges were later dropped back in July of 2005 after Harris testified that she had lied and that Mayweather had not, in fact, assaulted her. However, Mayweather was then taken into custody on September 10, 2010, but was released after posting $3000 bail.
Here comes the bleak news however…Mayweather was charged with felony theft stemming from the disappearance of Harris’s iPhone, and on September 16, 2010, two felony coercion charges and one felony robbery charge were added to the case. But it doesn’t end there, this all goes along with one misdemeanor domestic battery charge and three misdemeanor harassment charges. If convicted of all these charges, Mayweather could face up to 34 years in prison.
Mayweather’s future in boxing looks very very bleak at this time, and we won’t know anything further until he gets to trial and a verdict is announced.
