Floyd Mayweather arrested for misdemeanor battery in Las Vegas

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 26, 2018 | 0 Comments

Floyd Mayweather Sr. is facing charges in Las Vegas for misdemeanor battery stemming from a September 16, 2017, incident. He allegedly dragged a woman by her leg from his car and punched her following a boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena. This episode reportedly followed an argument between Mayweather and the woman while they were walking back to his car.

The woman reportedly sustained a bruise and two scratches. An arrest warrant for Mayweather was not issued until January 16 of this year. He was booked at the Clark County Detention Center but has since been released on bail.

"It raises suspicion why it took so long for police to issue an arrest warrant in this case," commented Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Becker. "Clearly they were having trouble compiling evidence against Mayweather. And celebrities are often unfairly targeted just because of who they are. But no matter who you are, charges should be dropped if the state cannot prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, which is a very high standard."
