Floyd Mayweather Arrested in Las Vegas

Floyd Mayweather has been arrested for Grand Larceny and is being held on $3,000.00 bond.

Why Grand Larceny and not a domestic violence charge? Because a DV charge would have had to have been filed within 24 hours of the crime and since Floyd stayed M.I.A. they can't hold him for that. But, since Floyd took a few things from his baby mama's house on his way out, namely her iPhone, they got him for that.

A few more details from the Las Vegas Journal
Josie Harris said Floyd Mayweather "let himself in" to her home in the 3800 block of Tropical Vine Street at about 2 a.m. and began searching through her belongings.

After she confronted Mayweather, he accused her of dating another man, she wrote in the report.

"He would 'have me and my guy friend taken care of,'" she said Mayweather told her.

Harris called Las Vegas police and officers escorted Mayweather from the home about 3 a.m., she said.

Several hours later, Mayweather returned to the home, knocked on their son's bedroom door and asked to be let in.

Harris, who was sleeping on a couch, woke to find Mayweather standing over her, she said. Mayweather pulled her off the couch and began assaulting her in front of their children, she said.

Harris said she told the children to call 911 or run outside to get help, but Mayweather said "if they ran or tried to call the police he would beat them the same way," she said.

Mayweather followed the children outside and Harris fled to the garage, she said. Mayweather yelled he was going to kill Harris and her boyfriend and "make sure we are taken care of," she wrote. He then drove away in his car.

After the incident Harris was taken to Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, where she was treated for minor injuries and released.

Harris said Mayweather also visited her home a week and a half before the incident and threatened her about a new boyfriend. Police were called, but Mayweather left before officers arrived, she wrote.
FYI: A domestic violence charge is still in the works, it's just that after the 24 hour period it has to go through the District Attorney's office for review before they can move forward.
