According to TMZ, legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s bodyguard is being accused by an individual of a crime in the form of a battery charge. A member of The Money Team is being accused of an assault at the Yard House near Crypto.com Arena (formerly Staples Center) in Los Angeles, California.
The authorities, according to the report, claim that the person has inconsistencies in his story. The police are investigating the incident.
A battery report was filed by the police. However, if it’s determined that he lied once the investigation is completed with the help of surveillance video, the alleged victim could be facing the crime of filing a false police report.

Witnesses claim that the man waited 30 minutes to call the cops after the incident. His story is reportedly different than what The Money Team and witnesses have told the authorities.
Mayweather Jr., according to the report, claims that nothing happened.
Witnesses claim that the bodyguard merely took the phone out of his hand. The bodyguard wanted the guy to erase the video from his phone.
However, witnesses, the report said, claimed that the man “flopped” after having the interaction with the bodyguard. The bodyguard gave the guy his phone back before everyone left.
Mayweather Jr. and his team left the venue following the altercation. His reps, the report said, said they left due to it being too crowded.
