LAS VEGAS (AP) — A security guard has accused boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. of poking him in the face several times and threatening him over parking violations outside Mayweather’s home, police said Tuesday.
Mayweather refused to speak with police officers called to his house to investigate the Monday evening confrontation, but a misdemeanor battery report was taken and was being submitted to the Clark County district attorney for possible prosecution, Las Vegas police Officer Marcus Martin said.
The guard told police that Mayweather has been in an ongoing dispute with homeowner association security officers over parking outside his home.
The guard, whose name was not made public, told police he was writing a new round of citations for several vehicles parked improperly on the street outside Mayweather’s home when the boxer threatened and attacked him.
“Mr. Mayweather became agitated and came out of his house,” Martin said. “When the guard rolled down the window, he poked the security guard in the face with his finger several times, according to the security officer.”
Martin said Mayweather declined to come out of his house when officers knocked, telling them through the door that he wouldn’t talk with them and wishing them a good night.
Mayweather’s attorney did not immediately return a call requesting comment.
Mayweather, 33, has lived in the five-bedroom, two-story home on Wood Creek Court for roughly two years, according to public records.
He is expected in Las Vegas Justice Court in January on unrelated felony coercion, grand larceny and robbery charges stemming from a Sept. 9 dispute with the mother of his children. Prosecutors said he also threatened his sons.
