The Misdemeanor charges stems from a confrontation Nov. 15 during which authorities allege Mayweather poked a 21-year-old security guard repeatedly in the left cheek during a loud verbal confrontation over parking tickets.
This was the second arrest in three months for the 33-year-old Mayweather. Mayweather was arrested just before midnight Thursday at the Posh Bellagio Resort on the Las Vegas Strip. He was booked early Friday into the Clark County Jail without bail. Mayweather was freed less than 12 hours after his arrest.
Mayweather had previous misdemeanor battery and assault convictions in Las Vegas and in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is facing a felony coercion, grand larceny and robbery case stemming from a September dispute with his children and their mother at her home. He also faces trial Jan. 24 in that case, and could face up to 34 years in prison if convicted.
