Judge Issues Warrant For Floyd Mayweather's Arrest
Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassel said Thursday that the warrant issued Dec. 8 requires Mayweather to turn himself in or face arrest at any time.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Tony Abbatangelo signed the arrest warrant for Mayweather after a Dec. 7 hearing, then immediately recalled it. It was reinstated after prosecutors complained Mayweather had received special treatment.
The battery allegation stems from a Nov. 15 confrontation over parking tickets between the undefeated champion and a
security guard outside Mayweather's home.
Mayweather faces a a six-month jail sentence and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
