Mayweather found not guilty of assault
A judge in Las Vegas has found WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. not guilty on misdemeanor charges accusing him of threatening two homeowner association security guards outside his gated development home.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Diana Sullivan said on Wednesday that she was not convinced the guards feared for their safety during a confrontation with Mayweather over parking tickets in the October 2010.
The 34-year-old undefeated boxer faced up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine if the judge found him guilty of both harassment charges.
He was accused of threatening to summon "homies" with guns to handle a dispute after the guards ticketed several of his vehicles that were parked near his house in violation of association rules.
Mayweather Jr, who recently defeated Victor Ortiz to claim the WBC crown, still face other criminal charges unrelated unrelated to the Wednesday’s court hearing.
