Metro says it responded earlier this month to domestic call involving boxer Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears in court at the Regional Justice Center on Friday, June 1, 2012, to start his 90-day jail sentence for domestic battery.

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. narrowly missed another encounter with police earlier this month when a female summoned officers during a family disturbance.

Metro Police spokesman Bill Cassell said police received a call at 9:57 p.m. Sept. 9 from a residence in the 10000 block of Baystone Street, near Decatur Boulevard in the southern valley.

The female caller reported that she was in a verbal altercation with Mayweather, Cassell said. Officers responded, but Mayweather had left by the time police arrived, Cassell said.

Police found no evidence of a physical altercation, and the female declined to file a police report, Cassell said. Metro would not reveal the relationship between the female caller and Mayweather.

The incident comes less than two months after Mayweather was released from the Clark County Detention Center. In December 2011, the boxer pleaded guilty in Las Vegas Justice Court to a misdemeanor count of battery constituting domestic violence stemming from an altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris. Mayweather also pleaded no contest to two counts of harassment.

Mayweather served about two months of a 90-day jail sentence related to those charges, beginning June 1. He was released Aug. 3.
