Floyd Mayweather Arrested - Mugshot
We're told Mayweather was at a casino on the strip when a security guard recognized him and called the Las Vegas police.

Mayweather, who was all smiles in his latest mugshot, is still in custody.

As we first reported, a security guard patrolling Floyd's gated community claims the boxer poked him in the face when confronted about a parking violation.

If convicted Mayweather faces a maximum of 6 months in jail.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Floyd has been released from custody.

He tipped his location anonymously to the police so that he could avoid fighting Pacquiao. LOL.

So much for "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." That security guard should be fired immediately as he just cost his casino a ton of money which is never a good thing when casino profits are at an all time low.

The low life security guard wanted to be paid off and he didn't get it. I'll bet that moron will be fired today and be lucky to get a job behind a McDonald's counter by Christmas.

Amazing how stupid these idiots are.

I already see a LOT of overreaction by the police and DA for a simple finger poking incident, which is usually a summary citation in 99% of the counties outside of Las Vegas. Something is extremely fishy about this case. If only they put this much effort in their REAL cases, maybe the identity of Tupac's murderer wouldn't still be unknown all these years later.

He'd probably change his mind and would eventually fight the iron fist Manny Pacquiao. Floyd would surely need some money to bail him out from all these troubles he's been causing himself lately. I wonder how much he's lost in frequenting those casinos in Vegas.
