Report: Floyd Mayweather Jr. arrested

Numerous media outlets are reporting that Floyd Mayweather Jr. was arrested last night in Las Vegas. The reports say that the arrest stems from a battery charge alleging that Mayweather poked a 21-year-old security guard in the face during a Nov. 15 argument over parking tickets.

As Mayweather's legal troubles mount, a potential fight against Manny Pacquiao seems further and further away.

Here is the latest Associated Press report of the arrest:

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer for Floyd Mayweather Jr. says the boxer is to be released from a Las Vegas jail following his arrest on a misdemeanor warrant alleging he poked a security guard in the face last month outside his home.

Attorney Richard Wright told The Associated Press on Friday the 33-year-old Mayweather was being processed for release without bail from the Clark County jail pending a Tuesday court date.

Police Officer Jacinto Rivera said Friday that Mayweather was arrested late Thursday at a Las Vegas-area casino.

The warrant stems from a battery charge alleging Mayweather poked a 21-year-old security guard in the face during a Nov. 15 argument over parking tickets.

Mayweather had been free on bail on unrelated felony charges stemming from a September dispute with his children and their mother.
