Mayweather Jnr acquitted of harrassment

BOXING: Floyd Mayweather Jnr was yesterday acquitted of misdemeanor harassment charges alleging he threatened the lives of two homeowner association security guards in an argument about parking tickets outside the boxer's Las Vegas home.

The 34-year-old didn't testify during the Las Vegas Justice Court trial. His attorney called the encounter between Mayweather and the guards a "trivial matter", and said the case hinged on the boxer's celebrity.
