Facing misdemeanor harassment charges, Floyd Mayweather Jr was found not guilty in a Las Vegas court yesterday. For those who have a hard time keeping track, this was the case where Mayweather allegedly threatened security guards after they gave him a parking ticket:

"If this wasn’t Floyd Mayweather, we wouldn’t have been in court," attorney Richard Wright said outside the downtown Clark County Regional Justice Center. "Any other case would have resolved with an offer of an apology and a handshake."

... The two guards feared for their safety, prosecutor Lisa Luzaich said.

The guard were armed with handguns, Wright countered. They never left their patrol pickup truck during Mayweather’s display, and could have driven away.

The judge agreed.

"I do not see evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that they were in fear for their safety," she said.

The 34-year-old Mayweather still has other pending cases in Las Vegas, but this is one down at least. Probably the only serious case is the one involving domestic violence against the mother of his children, and most should be expected to basically be cast aside the way this one was. Don't expect much to come of finger-poking and the like.

As for his boxing career, Mayweather is expected to return next year, but you never know. If he does fight in 2012, he'd likely be in the ring in May, September, or November, the traditional big fight months.
