Mayweather Jr. in More Trouble: Accused of Assault, Again

By Mark Vester

The legal troubles continue for Floyd Mayweather Jr. According to a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal, Mayweather was accused of assault with a deadly weapon for trying to force another vehicle off the road. The paper obtained a Las Vegas police incident report. The reports states the incident took place on Monday. Mayweather has not been arrested.

The accuser is a familiar name. 26-year-old Quincey Williams, a former Mayweather acquaintance and employee, claims that he was driving his Mazda on Arville Road, near Spring Mountain Road, when Mayweather, driving a white Bentley, made a U-turn and "tried to run him off the road." The Bentley did not strike Williams' vehicle.

Williams is a familiar name to some because he was the same victim from the August 2009 shooting incident at a Las Vegas roller skating rink. Mayweather associate Ocie Harris was indicted on two felonies, including attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, in connection with the shooting.

On August 23, 2009, Williams told authorities Mayweather threatened his life at the Crystal Palace Skating Center in Las Vegas, over a text message that was sent weeks earlier. Williams wrote in the text message that he hoped Mayweather would lose his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. 

When Williams left the skating rink, Harris, who was Mayweather's bodyguard at the time, opened fire on Williams' BMW. The car was hit six times. Williams told police that he didn't know Harris before the incident, and made allegations that Mayweather ordered the shooting.

Williams said Tuesday that he's lived in fear since the shooting incident.

"He (Mayweather) feels like he's entitled to do whatever he wants and get away with it. He wants to walk around and intimidate people like he's some type of thug," Williams was quoted by the paper.

If the new accusation is found to be valid, a Las Vegas justice of the peace could revoke Mayweather's bail in his ongoing domestic violence case, where he's facing several felony charges in connection with a September domestic violence incident with the mother of his three children, Josie Harris. Earlier this month, Mayweather was accused of misdemeanor battery by a security guard at the Southern Highlands development. Mayweather was accused of poking the security guard several times in the face following a confrontation over a parking citation.

In December 2003, Harris claimed Mayweather assaulted her outside a nightclub during an argument, but at the July 2005 trial Harris went back on her story and told the jury that "she lied" about the beating. In 2002, Mayweather pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor domestic violence charges. In 2005, he was convicted in the unprovoked beating of two women in the Ra nightclub at Luxor. He received a suspended one-year jail sentence.
