Las Vegas PD says no investigation of Floyd Mayweather Jr. assault allegations


Earlier this week there were reports that two former employees of boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. received a beat down per his direction after being accused of stealing jewelry from his home. TMZ even posted photos of alleged x-rays from the men showing their broken bones.

But per Laura Meltzer, a public information officer for the Las Vegas police, there is no current investigation into the alleged assault as a police report hasn’t been filed.

“So I’ve been trying to put this rumor to rest all week,” she said in a phone interview. “We’ve had a variety of reports that have come out stating this event occurred. We have not had a victim come forward and make a report like what is being alleged. So if this event occurred, it’s something where the victim has not come forward to the police to make an official complaint.”

As a result, the police, led by the violent crimes unit, have not launched an investigation into the incident.

“As of right now, the bureau commander over there is not aware of any complaint that has been officially filed,” she said. “So again, if this is a victim who is choosing not to come forward and make a report – then that’s up to the victim to do. We don’t have any say in that. There is no criminal complaint on file so there is no reason to go and contact Mr. Mayweather.”

Sounds as if the two men might be going the civil route as they have retained lawyers. Which then leads to the next question, why wouldn’t you pursue a criminal suit first if the accusations are valid.
