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.

Floyd is a coward who is creating distractions and problems so he can use them as excuses to duck the man he fears MANNY PACQUIAO. What a coward!

Floyd is just one example of famous people who thinks their above everyone else. Most get away with this attitude but this time it caught up to him.

I hope he learns and stays away from troubles from here.

Mayweather will prefer to served in the jail for many years than to do a suicide fighting with pacquiao which after all he has no assurance to enjoy or even live life...

how can you prove to be the best if you keep yourself getting in trouble? Pacquiao said to Mayweather, "Clean yourself up and lets get in the ring". and once again Jr will do somethin stupid!

Nice mug shot. I'm guessing he figures if he goes to jail he'll be pitching and not catching.

How idiots are the people who turn on to the security guard that tip maywether's presence.....This is about justice, not money. I salute this guy for doing his job a citizen of United States and stand no favor to uphold the law. To the Security Guard of the Casino, "Job Well Done"!
