Mayweather Faces Additional Charges
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. now faces eight criminal counts in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris. The district attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint, charging the 33-year-old Mayweather with two felony counts of coercion, and felony counts of robbery and grand larceny. He also faces misdemeanor counts of battery domestic violence and harassment. According to the complaint, Mayweather threatened to beat two of his children if they called for help or left the house during the incident last Thursday at Harris’ house in Las Vegas. Mayweather is also accused of grabbing Harris’ hair and throwing her to the floor during the dispute. The police report said Mayweather’s ten-year-old son told officers he saw his dad hit his mother, and that Mayweather took the cell phones of Harris and both children. If convicted, he faces up to 34 years in prison. Mayweather’s arraignment is scheduled for November 9th.
