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.

Good god!!! look at that face! I would hit her too and real hard because she "look like a man" and probably hits like one... Wow Floyd, you couldn't do better than that? Now watch her peel off your banknotes in a line that is going to be as long as train smoke.

Thank you, Melissa (currently #51)! I can't believe it took 50 comments before someone came up with your theory.

Considering his history with domestic violence, it makes perfect sense to me that this woman claimed she lied on her police report. He was probably afraid of the publicity & his career so he sweet-talked her, offering money and promises never to hit her again if she'd recant her statement.

At least this time, there was a witness who heard someone screaming. If it turns out it was this woman, it'll back up her claim of being abused.

hello    

Can anybody say karma? Love how when Floyd makes racial insults at Manny nobody makes a big deal about it. If Floyd was white it would be the biggest story on the news. Double standard. Black racists should be accountable for their actions just like everybody else. If Manny said the n-word towards Floyd he would be looked at as a terrible person. I hope Manny destroys Floyd. If only Floyd wasn't too scared to fight him.
