A judge has found boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. not guilty on misdemeanor charges accusing him of threatening two homeowner association security guards outside his Las Vegas home.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Diana Sullivan said Wednesday that she was not convinced the guards feared for their safety in the October 2010 confrontation over parking tickets.

The 34-year-old boxer faced up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine if the judge found him guilty of both harassment charges.

He was accused of threatening to summon "homies" with guns to handle a dispute after the guards ticketed several of his vehicles that were parked near his house in violation of association rules.
