Floyd Mayweather Acquitted in Harassment Case
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has won one of several lawsuits he is currently facing after a judge found him not guilty of misdemeanor charges that stemmed from an alleged altercation with security guards just outside his Las Vegas home.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Diana Sullivan said there was no evidence that the two guards feared they would be harmed during the argument with Mayweather. The altercation occurred on October 4, 2010 when Mayweather reportedly got mad after finding parking tickets on his cars. He allegedly berated the two security guards at his gated community then stuck one the tickets on the windshield of the patrol car. One of the guards, Miguel Burgos, said Mayweather threatened them. “My homies have guns, if you want me to call them they’d come over here and take care of you,” Burgos quoted Mayweather as telling them.
However, the judge said the guards were never in danger during the altercation, especially since they had handguns and were inside their vehicle. “I do not see evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that they were in fear for their safety,” Judge Sullivan said.
Mayweather is expected back in court on November 4 for an unrelated case, this time for misdemeanor battery charges.
