Those thinking that Floyd Mayweather Jr. would make some newsworthy noise during this weekend thanks to all the eyes on the boxing world were right. But he hasn't announced a fight. He's been charged with another misdemeanor, and the accusation is from last October.

TMZ reports that Mayweather has been hit with a charge of misdemeanor harassment after threatening two security guards over parking tickets:

According to the criminal complaint, it all happened back in October [when] two security guards cited a couple of Mayweather's cars parked outside his 12,000-foot mansion ... and Floyd flipped.

Mayweather allegedly threatened the guards -- who patrol the boxer's upscale housing community -- after he noticed the citations, claiming, "My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they'd come over here and take care of you."

According to the complaint, Floyd added, "These are my f**king cars. Don't touch my f**king cars."

Mayweather, 34, has not fought since May 1, 2010, and currently has two trials semi-underway, continually being postponed. One is a misdemeanor charge stemming from poking a security guard in the face, while the other has eight counts (felonies and misdemeanors) from a domestic violence charge, and carries serious jail time if he is convicted.
