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.

After reading the comments on this thread about Floyd I feel very disturbed.
Not over Floyd so much(yes it wasn't a bright move on his part), but all the racist, haters still lurkin' in the shadows of our great country!
YOU are the people that should be feared not Floyd!!

As for the rest of you "perfect" individuals out there who have never ever made any mistakes in your lives, give the guy a break. It's not his fault he isn't as perfect as you are.

Yes, it seems he's not making very good choices, but as another writer commented, "you weren't there, and you don't live there".

Not saying he's right , just sayiing there's a reason for everything.
