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.

I doubt he would have done this if Pacqualo (who is most likely on roids)touched his car.

Morons like this always "pick their target".

What a d-bag security guard. Who sues over that? You Americans will try and sue over anything and everything. I tell you what, that **** wouldn't fly in Canada.

Someone needs to knock the hell out of Mayweather and get him off his high chair- too ****y for his own good.

He is not above the law. He got a parking citation- so what, pay the damn thing. He can surely afford it with all the bragging he does.

I live in the same area as money mayweather and the security around here take there jobs way to seriously and think they are real cops at times stopping you if you are walking around your neighborhood. If you understood all the stupid rules they have here and the amount of hoa fees we pay you might just want to poke them in the face to.

One must admire and congratulate the Floyd fans. All 3,000+ all told will stick with him through thick or thin, no matter what. Possibly more out of hatred for the Pacmaniacs than actual devotion to him.

This guy thinks he is above everyone. He has a long history of this type of stupid behavior. Shootings and fights at strip clubs, beating up his baby momma and now this?
