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.

pacman's schedule b4 retiring(without having to fight mayweather who'll probably end-up in jail):

nov 2010 - pacquiao beats margarito for the 154 lbs title
april 2011 - pacquiao fights and beats mosley to retain his 147 lbs title
july 2011- pacquiao fights and beats bradley-alexander winner for the 140 lbs title
nov 2011 - pacquiao fights and beats marquez for the 135 lbs title
may 2012 - pacquiao fights and beats martinez for the 160...... lbs title with the latter not weighting more than 160...... lbs on fight night

afterwards, pacquiao would be accomplishing another record-breaking feat. holding 4 weight titles in a span of 1 year and 5 weight titles in a span of 1 1/2 year. that hopefully will shot up dela hoya coz manny will also dehydrate himself to make the 135 for marquez, shot up hopkins coz pacman will be fighting 2 african-americans in mosley and bradley/alexander

@ #13 You wouldn't think it was a stupid lawsuit if it was you or someone you cared about that he assaulted. Mayweather has anger issues and he is out of control. He need to check himself before he catches a bullet. All it's going to take is for him to roll up on someone with a temper as bad as his, then its on.
