Facepokegate: Mayweather Charged With Battery

In what is probably the silliest-sounding of all the current legal troubles hounding Floyd Mayweather Jr., TMZ reports that Mayweather has been hit with a battery charge as a result of the recent incident where he allegedly poked a security guard in the face inside his gated community.

According to the documents, [Shayne] Smith alleges Mayweather screamed that the guard had "no f*cking business" touching his personal property -- before the boxer grabbed a citation from one of his cars and slapped it on Smith's patrol vehicle.

The document continues, "While lambasting Smith, Mayweather was allegedly jabbing his finger into the left side of Smith's cheek just below his eye. This willful and unlawful use of force and violence upon Smith caused redness and discoloration to the area which was battered by Mayweather."

Mayweather's camp has said nothing about the matter at this time. Floyd is also facing multiple charges for alleged assault on the mother of his children, and was recently alleged to have committed vehicular assault against the man who last year was shot at while at a skating rink in Las Vegas, which also allegedly involved Mayweather.

Mayweather last fought in May, defeating Shane Mosley by unanimous decision in Las Vegas. There have been no serious fight talks for Floyd since the last round of "negotiations" fell apart to match Floyd with Manny Pacquiao, the other man making claim to boxing's mythical pound-for-pound crown.
