Prizefighter and MMA critic Mayweather arrested for domestic violence


Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been arrested in Las Vegas following the domestic violence claims made by his baby mama.

As we first reported, Josie Harris called the police at around 5 AM yesterday from her home in Vegas -- and when cops arrived she told them the professional boxer had attacked her and threatened to kill her.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mayweather was arrested and booked for grand larceny related to the domestic incident.  According to the report, Mayweather allegedly took personal items from Harris' house.

Mayweather was booked and held on $3,000 bail.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department has recommended that Floyd Mayweather Jr. should also be charged with domestic violence ... in addition to the grand larceny charge he was arrested for earlier today.

The LVMPD claims Mayweather surrendered to authorities earlier this morning in connection with an alleged domestic incident with his baby mama Josie Harris.

Cops tell us Mayweather was booked on one count of felony grand larceny ... but the LVMPD claims they have recommended that the Clark County District Attorney's Office also hit the boxer with "the additional charge of battery domestic violence."

The cops add that the D.A. will "evaluate the evidence in this case to determine the appropriateness of [the domestic violence] charge."

Making $$$ before going to jail isn't going to help him when his next fight will probably be his pucker hole vs a broom handle in the prison laundry room.

The coercion and harassment charges are for threatening to beat up his kids if they called 911. Mayweather is going to do time, there is no way he isn't going to be found guilty with his kids taking the stand.

So many of us are so emotionally attached to our fighter. It'll be truly devastating if either one loses. Can't wait for the fight.

you weren't paying attention when all  this happen. it was the photo that caused all the rukus.    it was days after the fact there were just as many people saying that Ranallo left the club earlier as were people saying she went to the room.    bunch of he said/she said crap that only gossiping bitches care about but I had to point that out because you have this idea that Manny's people would never call him out on something like that.   I assure you sir, they can and will in a heartbeat.  You've always looked for a reason to talk shit on Floyd, you haven't been paying attention. I've always praised Floyds boxing but feel that all his bullshit self entitled ego has held him back from fighting the best fights he could.   I could honestly could give a crap about him going broke, beating women, being a dipshit on Ustream or  carrying a gun or any of that crap.   Just quit bullshiting and get this stupid fight done already. so i'm doing the same with Manny...don't be so naive to think Manny is some perfect human being, and a great ambassador for his country. you haven't been paying attention. I was all over Manny for getting into fucking Philippine politics at the prime of his boxing career and promoting singing concerts and other bullshit.   who the fuck said he was perfect?    not sure where you're getting this from but seriously, take a step back and realize you are sounding like some gossiping 12 year old girl.

Im so surprised to hear "Prettyboy" defend MayweatherThe people you talk about are poor with shitty lawyers, rich people plead guilty because they want a lenient sentenceEven IF your bullshit excuse was true. Floyd was convicted for assaulting two women at a nightclub aswellBut what can you expect from a family of criminals?

had nothing to do with a photo, people saw him going into the girls hotel room prior to one of his fights, I'm sure it wasn't to say a prayer lol....You've always looked for a reason to talk shit on Floyd, so i'm doing the same with Manny...don't be so naive to think Manny is some perfect human being, and a great ambassador for his country.
