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.

If i was FMj I would fight PACMAN just to shut everybody up. Win or lose but the bastard knows that he loses he will never generate 25M a fight. But considering that what ever was kept from the dark will come to light says FMj now is if finally exposed of ducking high caliber fighter. And you claim to be the BEST! ***** pls....

So whats the use of being an Officer/security/police if people like mayweather jr will just poke you in the face if ever they violate the law? so, my question is, whats the use of the LAW then?

Man it keeps going down hill for this guy on top of not wanting to fight Paquiao he folds on his own mind games. well it would seem paquiao has to look else where for fights this year, he should unify the welterweight and retire some people and ask for 60/40 in his favor if Floyd ever decides to fight him. we all reap what we sow and were where we are at because of the decisions we make. when you have money any little incident can be elavated for a pretty pay day and you can't think your invincible and above the law that's when it starts to tumble.i'm not sympathizing for Floyd or defending him but i hope he gets his sh*t together so he can lose his 0. either way he becomes a 0

Gadz hope he gets out and get his head straight and actually start fighting again.Whenever he is fighting he is focused on training and not getting into trouble.The problem with Floyd is his reputation is so bad now that any accusation about him will always work against his favor.If his other charges will ever go to trial he will have a hard time finding a jury that wont be biased against him now.He better cough up alot of money or hes looking at a long time in jail.
