Mayweather hit with 2 more felony charges in Vegas

Published September 17, 2010

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

A complaint filed Thursday by Clark County District Attorney David Roger significantly raises the ante in the criminal case stemming from allegations that Mayweather hit his ex-girlfriend, threatened their children and took three cell phones during an argument at the woman's home a week ago.

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

The new complaint increases to 27 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.

Mayweather's lawyer, Richard Wright, hadn't seen the new complaint and is declining immediate comment.
