Mayweather caught on tape
By Vitali Shaposhnikov: On September 9 just after 5 pm, a security camera at a guard station picked up three kids running inside. Some time later, a police car arrived at the scene, followed by an ambulance. In a few minutes, a woman is seen wheeled out on a medical gurney. The woman is holding on to her head as she is taken to the EMT response vehicle.

This woman is Josie Harris, the same Mrs. Harris that is currently suing the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. for assault, trespassing and a few more knick-knacks forming an eight-charge case.
This video does a good job confirming that the police and medical staff were indeed there, and that Mrs. Harris was escorted out on a gurney. But that’s about all it does. I am not entirely sure why this video was released, and what it is meant to do. It doesn’t include Floyd, thus has absolutely no ties to the champ.
Floyd is due back in court on January 24. At this point, with such little evidence available, I wonder how this case will conclude. Rarely do I stand in and speak out for the famous defendant, as money and fame has the tendency to change people, in some cases making them unaware of consequences that could come of doing something that others are not allowed to do.
While I don’t speak for all the boxing fans out there, I hope I am speaking for many, by saying that I wholeheartedly hope that Floyd does not get abused by the system, and does not end up serving time. I would really like to see him climb back in the ring real soon.
