Arrest Warrant Issued for Roger Mayweather

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas judge has issued an arrest warrant for Roger Mayweather after the boxing trainer failed to show up for a court appearance on battery and coercion charges.

Mayweather, who coached his nephew Floyd Mayweather Jr. to victory in a September fight, did not appear or have a lawyer present at a felony arraignment in Las Vegas Justice Court on Friday.

The 48-year-old Mayweather is accused of attacking a female boxer he once trained. She told police that Mayweather attacked her in August at an apartment Mayweather owns and was renting out.

A police report says the victim's roommate told authorities that Mayweather repeatedly harassed the boxer after she ended a training
arrangement with him.

Attempts to reach Mayweather were not immediately successful.
