Add another notch to embattled boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s list of legal woes in the past few months.

A criminal complaint filed today in Las Vegas Justice Court accuses Mayweather of threatening two security guards Oct. 4, 2010, in his gated Southern Highlands community. The case is separate from another publicized incident involving a Southern Highlands security guard that allegedly happened the following month.

According to the warrant, security officers Aaron Ryan and Miguel Burgos were issuing citations to Mayweather's vehicles parked in the street when the boxer returned home.

Mayweather became upset and allegedly told Ryan and Burgos that he had "homies" with guns who could remedy the situation, police noted in the warrant.

The security officers contacted Metro Police that day to file an incident report, but they chose not to pursue legal action at the time, according to the warrant.

Ryan contacted police Oct. 17, wishing to reopen the case. Detectives interviewed Ryan and Burgos again that month.

Mayweather has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of threatening to cause bodily injury to another person, in this case Ryan and Burgos, according to the criminal complaint.

Mayweather allegedly was involved in another incident with a security officer in his Southern Highlands neighborhood a month later. He was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly poking the security guard's cheekbone with his finger during a confrontation Nov. 15 about illegally parked cars outside his home.

Separately, a July 29 evidence hearing is set for Mayweather in a felony domestic violence case stemming from a Sept. 9 dispute with his former girlfriend, Josie Harris.

Mayweather is accused of hitting and threatening Harris, stealing her cell phone and threatening two of their children. He could face 34 years in state prison if convicted.

  1. Why no mention of the Skating Ring Shooting, when Boy's Employee Bodyguard, Ocie Harris fired 6 bullets into a BMW occupied by Boy's enemy who he had just told he would make disappear?
    Seems Boy has "JUICE" with the DA's office, and the articles author!
