According to a report at TMZ, the Las Vegas police are telling strip club owners not to let Floyd Mayweather and his crew into the building anymore, as he reportedly has been harassing and "manhandling" the women, something that Floyd denies, and something that club owners also deny.

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Vice unit of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department contacted multiple strip clubs in Sin City ... telling them Floyd and his crew have run roughshod in various clubs, manhandling the girls.

As one law enforcement source put it, "He [Floyd] goes in and pulls a 'Do you know who I am' and does inappropriate things with some of the women."

TMZ also says that they've spoken to people from Vegas clubs who say they're going to ignore this, as they've never had an issue with Mayweather or his team in the past. He also spends a lot of money, of course.
