Floyd Mayweather has been finding himself embroiled in controversy lately. First, Logan Paul has threatened to sue Money for not paying him after their exhibition boxing match last Summer. Now, one of his employees is looking at some trouble with the law.
Mayweather was hanging out at Yard House near Crypto.com arena in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. A man there claimed he was assaulted by a member of Floyd’s security detail. The undefeated champion became upset when he noticed someone filming him, which started the conflict.
TMZ Sports reports that the alleged victim said Mayweather’s bodyguard hit him. Witnesses at the scene described a much milder reaction. They told police the guard simply knocked the cell phone out of his hand that he was filming Floyd Mayweather with.
The alleged attacker “flopped” after the bodyguard struck the phone. In hockey parlance, this would be a two-minute minor for embellishment. Witnesses described what looked more like a European soccer player trying to draw a foul than an assault.
The victim noted that the bodyguard then picked up his phone from the ground. Mayweather’s protector tried to get the man to delete the video. When he said he wouldn’t comply with the request, the bodyguard gave him his phone back. Everyone separated and did their own thing from there.
Floyd Mayweather has denied that any significant incident occurred. The entourage left shortly there after because the restaurant was too crowded. It doesn’t sound like it will amount to much, but we’ll see what the police investigation finds.
