Mayweather hit with more felony charges in Vegas

Ken Ritter, The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS – Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being hit with three more felony and four misdemeanor charges in a domestic violence case that already had him facing a felony theft charge.

An eight-count criminal complaint filed Thursday by Clark County District Attorney David Roger significantly raised the ante in the criminal case accusing Mayweather of hitting his ex-girlfriend, threatening their children and taking cell phones during an argument at the woman’s home a week ago.

Mayweather previously faced one grand larceny charge carrying a possible sentence of five years.

The new complaint adds two coercion and one robbery charge, plus a domestic battery and three harassment charges.

It increases to 34 years the possible penalty the 33-year-old Mayweather could face if convicted of all charges.

He’s due for arraignment Nov. 9 in a Las Vegas court.
