LAS VEGAS — Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been freed from a jail in Las Vegas after posting bail on a felony theft charge stemming from a domestic violence complaint by his ex-girlfriend.
The 33-year-old Mayweather said nothing as he left the Clark County jail Friday after surrendering for booking on a grand larceny charge. Bail was $3,000.
Mayweather's lawyer, Richard Wright, says the charge stems from an allegation that Mayweather took an iPhone from Josie Harris, his ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his children.
Harris made a police complaint and sought a protection order Thursday from a Family Court judge.
She claims Mayweather hit her during a confrontation at her home in Las Vegas.
Wright denies Mayweather committed any crime.
