Mayweather

Charged with Battery

for Face Poking

12/7/2010 4:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather has been charged with criminal battery in Nevada for allegedly -- and this is serious -- poking a man in the cheekbone with his finger ... TMZ has learned.

Floyd Mayweather Charged
TMZ has obtained the criminal complaint -- in which cops say a private security officer named Shayne Smith told officers Mayweather went ballistic outside of his Las Vegas home on November 15 after Smith placed parking citations on two of Floyd's cars. 

According to the documents, Smith alleges Mayweather screamed that the guard had "no f*cking business" touching his personal property -- before the boxer grabbed a citation from one of his cars and slapped it on Smith's patrol vehicle.

The document continues, "While lambasting Smith, Mayweather was allegedly jabbing his finger into the left side of Smith's cheek just below his eye. This willful and unlawful use of force and violence upon Smith caused redness and discoloration to the area which was battered by Mayweather."

Smith claims he drove out of the area to "de-escalate" the situation, immediately notified his boss ... and then took photos of his bruised up cheek.

So far, no comment from Floyd's camp.

Mayweather is my dude, but you cant go around putting your hands on people. Your hands are registered weapons. Mayweather basically hit someone with a weapon. Which is battery, if the guy seen it happening it is assault and battery

What has Mayweather said about this claim? I don't believe this just because the dude says it happened. He could have poked himself under his eye. Besides, if Mayweather has as bad a temper as the media has portrayed, I think this dude would have "real" proof that he was assulted and battered.

Does this put some clarity on what a man is guilty of when he SLAPS a woman with a baby in her arms?

Some of you have all these double standards. Mel is guilty of assault AND domestic abuse. Don't excuse it because you hate Oksana. Assault and domestic abusive is not arbitrary depending on who you are.

Floyd made a definite error in judgment when he did this and will undoubtedly pay the consequences for it.

I do not think he's stupid enough to ever do such a thing again. If somebody makes you angry enough to result in something like this, walk off and get away from that person. You cannot TOUCH anyone for any reason particularly when angry.

WHAT?? Just another famewhore District Attorney trying to make a name for themselves by wasting taxpayer dollars to bring a stupid case like this to court! Why not go after real criminals?? Oh no, THAT would mean you would actually have to do the job you are being paid to do! Shame on you! You should feel quilty when you cash your next paycheck.

Get a Clue!    

OMG! He "poked" him in the face? This country is absolutely rediculous! Hey, I was walking through the grocery store and a lady in an electric grocery cart bumped into my ankle! I am thinking of pressing charges for "attempted vehicular homicide" also "assault with a deadly weapon"! This is crazy!
