The Legal Woes Keep Piling Up For Floyd Mayweather

(…so Tiny choked his ass…I know. Can you believe he had the nerve to ask ME for ID?)

On the heels of his latest criminal charges — a pair of misdemeanor harassment counts filed against him last week in Las Vegas, NV, ¬†Floyd Mayweather Jr. is at the center of new lawsuit.

The suit, filed by a Las Vegas strip club bouncer, alleges that one of the boxing champ’s bodyguards choked the complainant outside of his place of work, Drai’s at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon after he asked Mayweather and his entourage for identification before they were allowed entry into the club. According to court documents obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the plaintiff, Clay Gerling is seeking $10,000 in damages.

Last week the Review-Journal broke the news that “Pretty Boy Floyd,” was charged in Vegas Justice Court with two misdemeanor harassment counts stemming from an incident that allegedly took place in October in which Maywether told a¬†Southern Highlands security guard that he would get his friends with guns to come over and deal with the official hired by his gated community to look after parking enforcement after he was told to move his vehicle from the street. The incident was separate from earlier charges Mayweather is facing for poking another guard (who had issued him a parking citation) in the face.

Maywether is set for preliminary hearing on felony charges stemming from a September 9 domestic dispute with his baby’s mama, Josie Harris and their two children. Those charges include coercion, grand larceny and robbery.

Mayweather is rumored to be returning to the ring in September against 29-2-2 welterweight Victor Ortiz.

Mayweather doesn't care hes has more money than gets him out of everything.

Mayweather is nothing more than a rich gangbanger, he's already been investigated for a skating rink shooting (a.k.a. one of his accomplices is on trial for that, and floyd says he never met the guy), wife beating assualt and burgalry harrasing guards....

^whoever shot tupac and Bigge needs to shoot floyd jr also

Guys, Mayweather is a scumbag. The doorman WAS DOING HIS JOB. I've worked doors/security before in similar situations. "F" a Mayweather-he gets ID'd at the door with everyone else. The guy could get fired for NOT ID'ing at an adult establishment, it doesn't matter if Floyd had gray hair and an AARP card-he would get ID'd. Looking forward to the demise of this cretin, Mayweather. SO BAD FOR THE SPORT OF BOXING.

As a former doorman I can tell you one thing. If I saw half a dozen well dressed black men,covered in bling,getting ready to come in the club and make it rain money,I would smile real big and let em in. Shit house, they probably got out of a 100,000 dollar car.WTF?

Sounds like the Diaz brother equivalent of boxing. Superfight FTW!

I hate everything about this guy. Ghetto rich to a T

Is he wearing a Bopa dress uniform.
He should share a cell with War Machine now that would be a reality show I would actually watch!

I agree with ShortBus - Fuck boxing. These idiots are the reason I stopped watching it like 10 years ago.

There is nothing even mildly MMA related in this article.

I'd recognise Mayweather, but I sure as hell wouldnt recognise any of his entourage

do you know who I am bro? do you know who I am?

Wow, the bouncer isn't asking for an unreasonable amount of money. If that's all he's asking for and there's even a scintilla of truth to his claim, Floyd should just settle out of court for the full amount and move on, and be thankful the guy wasn't asking for some ridiculous amount that might warrant an actual trial just to lower the amount a jury awards (and if the guy isn't straight up lying, a jury would probably award him more than $10,000 even if that's all he was asking for).

And yes, even big name celebrities need to show I.D. Not everyone is going to recognize Floyd Mayweather on site. He is not Michael Jordan. Sounds like the bouncer was just doing his job. If there was an impasse, and Mayweather didn't actually have any I.D. on him, he could have asked the bouncer to ask the club manager.

"The incident was separate from earlier charges Mayweather is facing for poking another guard (who had issued him a parking citation) in the face."

What exactly were you actually trying to convey with that sentence?

You can have a do-over on that sentence. Here's a hint - fix the prepositional phrase.
El Guapo- May 9, 2011 at 5:49 pm
Victor Ortiz is not only in his prime, his a full fledged welterweight. None of that catchweight bullshit. He also hits like a donkey kicks. And if Floyd does man up and fight Pacman one day, I hope you guys forgot this conversation ever happened.
El Guapo- May 9, 2011 at 5:45 pm
If he fights Victor Ortiz I'll drink my own p.. Naaa, that's f'kn disgusting. But no way he fights Ortiz! Mayweather will only fight much smaller(please see Hatton, Ricky and Marquez, Juan Manuel)or older(Mosley, Shane)boxers nowadays. Or women(Wifey, Ex). Tell you what, if he fights Manny then I'll drink my own piss.

Sad that even if you belong in prison, money is all you need to stay out.
Spicymeatball- May 9, 2011 at 5:22 pm
Money Mayweather is going to simply end up broke and alone. He's a fucking joke, and I have no idea how he has such a loyal fan-base of nuthuggers who defend him even though its obvious he's scared shitless of fighting Manny. He blatantly doesn't give a shit about the fans and continuously ducks and dodges Pacman because he's afraid he'll lose, yet continuously talks shit on Pacman and tries to put the blame on Manny. The only fight anyone wants to see in pro boxing and he's the only thing keeping the fight from happening. Money Mayweather is a piece of shit, great boxer though.
danomite- May 9, 2011 at 5:21 pm
can't this cocksucker just go to jail already so we can be done with him?
sPeLLcHeCkEr- May 9, 2011 at 5:09 pm
Wow Floyd's doing anything under the sun to duck Pacquiao, huh?

Oh, and Ortiz's management dismissed said rumors.
Get Off Me- May 9, 2011 at 5:04 pm
10k that's it? That's about as dumb as asking for ID in the first place from these guys. This bouncer just got into a pissing contest with the wrong dudes, he should have known better, probably did and just wanted to feel important anyway, got sonned, life goes on, case dismissed.
