Floyd Mayweather Hit with 3 More Felony Charges

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being hit with three more felony and four misdemeanor charges in a domestic violence case that already had him facing a felony theft charge.

An eight-count criminal complaint filed Thursday by Clark County District Attorney David Roger significantly raised the ante in the criminal case accusing Mayweather of hitting his ex-girlfriend, threatening their children and taking cell phones during an argument at the woman's home a week ago.

Mayweather previously faced one grand larceny charge carrying a possible sentence of five years.

The new complaint adds two coercion and one robbery charge, plus a domestic battery and three harassment charges.

It increases to 34 years the possible penalty the 33-year-old Mayweather could face if convicted of all charges.

He's due for arraignment Nov. 9 in a Las Vegas court.

Mayweather's lawyer, Richard Wright, hadn't seen the new complaint. He's declining immediate comment.

Mayweather is undefeated as a professional fighter and is considered one of the sport's top performers, with a record of 41-0 and 25 knockouts. He goes by the nickname "Money" and earned more than $20 million in May from his fight in Las Vegas against "Sugar" Shane Mosley.

Mayweather has also been arrested several times over the years on battery and assault allegations.
