Floyd Mayweather Jr. Jailed in Vegas Battery Case
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police say boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is in a Las Vegas jail after being arrested on a misdemeanor warrant alleging he poked a security guard in the face last month outside his home.

Police Officer Jacinto Rivera said Friday that Mayweather was arrested late Thursday at a Las Vegas-area casino and was being held without bail at the Clark County jail pending a Monday court appearance.

Mayweather's attorneys didn't immediately respond to messages.
The warrant for the 33 year old Mayweather stems from a battery charge alleging he poked a 21 year old security guard in the face during a Nov. 15 argument over parking tickets.

Mayweather had been free after posting bail on unrelated felony charges following his arrest in a September dispute with his children and their mother.
