Floyd Mayweather Jr. Out on Bail for Grand Larceny Charges; Dodges a Domestic Assault Charge Bullet

(Look up "shit-eating grin" in the dictionary and you’ll find this photo.)

I’m sure most of us have gone back to an ex-girlfriend’s apartment after a break-up to retrieve a few things. A pair of shoes, the Pixies CD that mysteriously went missing from your car or the $100 you leant her so she could get her hair streaked — whatever it was, you paid for it and you wanted it back; so much so, that were willing to stomach having to see your replacement sitting shirtless on her sofa and resist the urge to head-kick his smug smile out the window as you waited to get your shit back.

The difference between most of us — okay, all of us — and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is that he made more in his last fight than all of CP’s readers combined will likely make this year and that all of the items most of us would swallow our pride to get back, he could replace with the money he has in the ashtray of one of his 20 cars.

In spite of that fact,  he managed to get thrown in jail for stealing his ex’s $500 iPhone.

After posting $3,000 bail today, Mayweather was released from Clark County jail in Las Vegas where he turned himself in earlier in the day for grand larceny charges stemming from an incident earlier in the week with one of his baby mama. According to police reports, the 33-year-old boxing champ is alleged to have hit his ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his children, Josie Harris, before taking her iPhone and leaving her residence.

Mayweather was not charged with domestic assault, which is no surprise since he didn’t land anything of note and just danced around Harris for 1/2 an hour.

Luckily, Mayweather has his pal, 50 Cent, to rep him in the court of public opinion.

Here’s Curtis Jackson’s take on the situation, as tweeted by the rapper as news that police issued a warrant for Floyd’s arrest began to spread yesterday.

 “Another case of angry baby momma wanting momma. Police are looking for @FloydMayweather, I just got off the phone with him…she’s claiming he hit her but has no brusies. Floyd went to see his kids last night, if a fighter of Floyd caliber hits you, you would be bruised…I talked to him before and after the situation, he wasn’t even upset. He said he asked her why the house was so dirty and she started trippin…”

"Floyd went to his ex’s house to see three of his kids and she got pissed when he said, ‘Bitch, clean up this dump,’ so he took her iPhone to teach her a lesson about respect."

Here’s "Fity’s" Twitter explanation of why Mayweather was pissed off with Harris in the first place:

“She has a girlfriend that stays in the guest house that Floyd is paying for her as child support that is helping fuel the situation…Floyd said he feels like her girlfriend is using her and pushing her in the wrong direction…This is crazy to me. I performed at Club Pure on NYE in Vegas. I remember Floyd showing me a ring he bought her for $1 mill. Who can you trust.”

"Floyd’s sick of paying the bills for his ex when she’s letting some ho live in the pool house. She should listen to him since he bought her a big diamond with the interest he made off the Mosley fight."

Grand larceny charges in Las Vegas carry a minimum penalty of 18 months probation and or a $5,000 fine and maximum of 10 years in prison.

It’s unlikely that Mayweather will go to jail, considering the circumstances and the fact that he likely bought and pays the bill on the phone he allegedly took. Besides that, he probably has $5,000 wedged between his couch cushions, so I can understand why he doesn’t seem too worried in his mugshot.

Yeah fuck a rascist asshole hasbeen like Mayweather, Bigshow shoulda drilled him through the canvas when he had the chance

It's not like me to take pleasure out of someone else's misfortune, especially when some guy has been fucked over by an ex. however in this case i can make an exception.
Just be thankful you never committed this in Canada Floyd, otherwise you would not have had the Domestic assault charge waived.....even if you are completely innocent all the police need her is your ex's word and, bang boom your in the holding cell and charged. Oh and you would have the onus on you to prove your innocence.
Pull your pants up over the bitch......god knows,... you could have any skank in Vegas with your bank.

@Titos Head,
You're right,it is damn funny for real!But if we follow that"mind state",or that way of thinking,and we put Jon Fitch's name instead of Mayweather,some could say he would've been accuse of rape!

"Mayweather was not charged with domestic assault, which is no surprise since he didn't land anything of note and just danced around Harris for 1/2 an hour." Now thats damn funny..

For the record if he had hit her in Vegas city limits he would be in Jail Domestic assault charges in Vegas are no joke whatsoever. Like I would rather get a charge aiding and abiding then Domestic assault on some real shit Vegas does not fuck around with those kinds of situation and the cops there between them and the Henderson police they got that ENTIRE area on lock.. Accept for Tweakers which they've started to crack down on so Viva Las Vegas.

Floyd Mayweather later justified his actions by saying if a Horrible MMA fighter aka "Whitey" Mike Whitehead could do it he could do it better and without marks.

Did someone say douchebag
cecils_pupils- September 10, 2010 at 4:58 pm
^^^ I agree, he prolly didn't do much of anything. But if he was some random guy and not a celeb the cops woulda charged him first and asked questions later.

On a side note - fuck Mayweather for all the racist shit he said about Manny - he's a punk bitch and needs to get taught a lesson. I hope they finally fight someday and Pacquiao fucks him up.

cecil... something tells me Floyd didn't hit her. Not gonna stick up for the guy... he's a dick... but still I think some cop would have played hero and been all over that one.

Now there's a face only a porn star could get paid to love.

When I took my ex wife's phone they told me it didn't matter if I bought it or payed the bill. They said since I bought it for her it was just like stealing when I took it back.

Luckily they didn't arrest me though. They just made me give it back.

@ktronics, i think i remember hearing that all the charges were dropped.
cecils_pupils- September 10, 2010 at 4:17 pm
Guilty or not, Money Mayweather would have a domestic violence charge if he wasn't Money Mayweather.

Just more proof that celebrities are treated differently by the penal system.
ktronics- September 10, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Nice man. Anybody know what came of that whole Tito fiasco? Seems like it was all swept under the rug as I'm sure this will be.
El Guapo- September 10, 2010 at 4:00 pm
CP should've run that n-word article for Floyd. Much more fitting..

BrutusBox- September 10, 2010 at 3:57 pm
my bet is that floyd and mike whitehead end up as cellies in clark county and they emerge as the best of "friends" having settled this whole mma vs. boxing fiasco.

translation- whitehead can't give up his sexual assaulting ways, and the cell didn't provide enough room for floyd to run away.

Floyd Mayweather later justified his actions by claiming that his girlfriend has long been addicted to OxyContin.

Guess he tried to live up to his nick name "money" in more ways than one.
