LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been arrested in Las Vegas on a felony theft charge stemming from a domestic violence complaint by his ex-girlfriend.
Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell says the 33-year-old Mayweather was booked Friday at the Clark County jail on a grand larceny charge. He's being held on $3,000 bail.
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.
