Boxer Floyd Mayweather was arrested on Friday over charges that he physically abused her and stole her cellphone during an argument.
Mayweather was in jail only for a brief period before he was released on $3,000 bail. He now faces up to five years in prison if convicted of grand larceny, reports the Associated Press. Grand larceny is the result of items stolen that are valued at $250 or more.
Mayweather is expected to appear in court on Nov. 9 in Law Vegas.
Mayweather, through his lawyer, has denied any wrongdoing.
Las Vegas Metro Police were called to the home around 5:00AM this morning after a 911 call was placed by Josie Harris, the mother of the boxing champion’s children.
Harris has requested an order of protection against Mayweather, which was granted by a judge.
In a nine-page document, Harris explained her position.
