Jail for Mayweather after battery case

 

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a perfect 42-0 in the ring and has dodged significant jail time several times in domestic violence cases in Las Vegas and Michigan. But his courtroom streak came to an end Wednesday when a Las Vegas judge sentenced him to 90 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to a reduced battery domestic violence charge and no contest to two harassment charges. The case stemmed from a hair-pulling, punching and arm-twisting argument with his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris while two of their children watched in September 2010. Good behavior could knock several weeks off Mayweather’s sentence, but he will likely serve most of the sentence set to begin Jan. 6, Las Vegas Police Officer Bill Cassell said.
