Floyd Mayweather Accused of Being A Thug; Sued For $200k Over Shooting
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being sued for almost $200,000, over an August 2009 shooting outside a Las Vegas skating rink.
Defendants Quincy Williams and Damien Bland filed a lawsuit in the District Clark County Court in Nevada yesterday (August 16th).
Williams, who once worked for Mayweather, became estranged with the world champion boxer around 2009, after he sent a text message stating he hoped that the undefeated Mayweather lost next match.
The men crossed paths at the Crystal Palace Skating Center, where Mayweather allegedly threatened Williams' life.
According to the lawsuit, Floyd Mayweather ordered his bodyguard to shoot at Williams' BMW, which was struck by at least six bullets, as it left the skating rink parking lot.
The lawsuit also claims that associates of Mayweather have been making verbal or physical threats to Williams and Bland since the incident.
Floyd Mayweather is accused of conspiracy, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress negligence and liability.
