It’s apparently just not a good week for athletes and the women they’re involved with. Earlier this week, Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa filed for divorce from him. Now, current WBC Welterweight Champion
VH1 reality TV star Floyd “Money” Mayweather, has gotten caught up in domestic violence charges and will be headed to jail.
According to Yahoo, Mayweather faced domestic dispute charges in Las Vegas that originated from an incident September 2010 involving Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, and which include harassment charges as well. Mayweather allegedly hit Harris and took away her cell phone, then proceeded to threaten two of the children they have together. Following a plea of guilty, Floyd was sentenced today to 90 days in jail, 100 hours of community service, and will have to pay a $2,500 fine as well. He is expected to report back to court on January 6.
No word yet as to whether “beating your baby moms” is up there with owning multiple expensive cars and both an indoor and outdoor basketball court in the Money Team code of morals, but at least Mayweather will be out of jail in time for his anticipated return to the boxing ring in the summer of 2012. Besides, take a look at Floyd’s mugshot below. Doesn’t that look like the face of innocent man? No? Oh.
