CAUTION! Video Contains STRONG Language!
A surveillance tape of boxer Floyd Mayweather Junior in a confrontation with a security guard outside his Las Vegas home is now on the Internet.
The tape on TMZ.com shows Mayweather engaging in what the website calls a “nuclear verbal attack,” because the guard guarding the gated Southern Highlands community didn’t recognize the boxer and asked for ID. It happened in the early morning hours of December 19th. The tape shows Mayweather lashing out at the guard, who remained calm during the incident. After the profanity-laced tirade, the tape shows Mayweather going into the guard’s booth and pushing the button to open the gate before driving off. The video has been turned over to police. Mayweather already faces a misdemeanor battery complaint for allegedly poking another Southern Highlands security guard in the face during a confrontation over parking tickets in November.
