Floyd Mayweather Jr. Suspect in Domestic Violence

9/9/2010 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a suspect in a battery domestic violence case.

Floyd Mayweather Domestic Violence
Multiple cop cars from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department showed up at Mayweather's home early this morning.  We're told cops received a call at 5:03 AM from Floyd's baby mama, Josie Harris, who claimed the boxer attacked her. 

Sources tell TMZ Harris went to Southern Hills Hospital in Las Vegas at some point after the incident and has now left.

Law enforcement sources say police were unable to find Floyd and are now looking to interview him. 

Cops want to speak to Floyd before determining if they will arrest him.

We're told Harris is going to court today to get a restraining order against Mayweather.

In 2003 Harris accused Mayweather of punching and kicking her inside a Bentley in Vegas.  Charges were filed but dismissed in 2005 after Harris testified she lied to cops because she was angry that Floyd had left her for another woman.

UPDATE:  A man who lives near Harris tells TMZ ... this morning at around 5 AM he awakened after hearing "a blood-curdling scream that sounded like someone was being murdered."  The man tells us he then saw someone in front of the house and then noticed two cars speeding off.

Wait a minute...Do I still live in America?

If I recall correctly, one is proven innocent until proven guilty. So let's stop ASS/U/ME(ing), even if the person is Floyd. I dislike him, but he deserves the due process and should be assumed innocent. We have idiots in White House locking up people without charging them. We don't need anymore idiots who want to violate a person's constitutional rights, even if I think Floyd is a racist.

Mayweather is a bum and since he is apparently the greatest fighter in his own head it would be great to see him in the UFC telling Rampage how great he is.

I hope they throw him in prison and he used as a pin cusion! He runs his loud, uneducated, unintelligible mouth non-stop. He is ignorant and a disgrace to his sex, race, profession and human kind in general. He actually believes he is so talented he is above acting civilized. (watch any one of his countless interviews for proof) His history of acting out in public in this same violent manner is not a definitive sign of guilt, but if the shoe fits. In retrospect, I hope he doesn't go to prison, that way he has to face Manny in the ring. Knowing Jr, he'll use this a some sort of excuse as to why he won't perform well. Not that he has taken a real fight in years. Nor has he backed up his loud mouthed bets and challenges he's made towards MMA pro Chuck Lidell. Bottom line, he's a bitch!

This guy is nothing but a poser. Big flashy words and ****, saying he's so tough and all.

**** that bull. You think hitting a woman makes you more of a man? And to people saying maybe the woman's jealous, etc..the ****?? You think you justify his actions by putting blame on the woman's emotional vulnerability? You people dumb as ****. THERE IS NO F*CKEN JUSTIFICATION FOR HITTING A WOMAN. Get over your high horses and quit putting up alibis for this dumbass mother****er.

I'm team pacman all the way.

@ #18 (Michael) ---- You have obviously NEVER been in the justice system inthis country. You are NOT innocent until Proven guilty. You ARE Guilty until you Prove Yourself Innocent. Why do you think we have so many lawyers out there. It's a great philosophy, IUPG, but it does not work that way. And yeah, PACMAN was more than willing to take the fight. Floyd GAYweather Jr continuously made up new requirments for PACMAN to go through until he got tired of the games Jr was playing and backed out. Flkoyd hasn't fought a real fighter in years. All so he can think of himself as the greatest fighter. But he wouldn't take Chuck Lidell up on his counter challenge of fighting a 135lb MMA out of his camp. That gave Gayweather the weight advantage and with his talent (in his own head), he should have jumped on that! I mean c'mon, Gayweather challenged Lidell for $1mil if any mma guy could beat his ass. Yet he backed down from a 135lb. He's just a punk from the hood that has millions and hides behind the $$. What a waste of life and money!
