Floyd Mayweather Jr. arrested for grand larceny; domestic violence charges may follow


And not surprisingly, The Smoking Gun has his mug shot and charges on display:

Boxer Floyd Mayweather was arrested by Las Vegas police in September 2010 and charged with grand larceny. The 33-year-old Mayweather, also known as "Money," was accused by his ex-girlfriend (and the mother of three of his children) of stealing her iPhone. The undefeated fighter was booked into the Clark County jail and held on $3000 bail.

Hard to blame the guy, the new iPhone 4 is virtually impossible to find in stores. As far as the domestic violence charges, well, those may be a little harder to explain.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal elaborates:

A temporary protection order filed by (Josie) Harris, who has three children with the boxer, was obtained by the Review-Journal Friday. Harris said Mayweather punched her in the head, pulled her hair and tried to break her arm after entering her home as she slept.

And it wouldn't be a celebrity scoop if TMZ wasn't adding their two cents:

"Las Vegas Metro Police Department claims they have recommended that the Clark County District Attorney's Office also hit the boxer with 'the additional charge of battery domestic violence.' The cops add that the D.A. will 'evaluate the evidence in this case to determine the appropriateness of [the domestic violence] charge.'"

Not a good week to be money, especially on the heels of his infamous "yellow midget" racist video rant.
