Showtime Pay Per View has just announced the cancelation of the August 26th fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor after Mayweather was arrested for another alleged domestic violence assault while driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police responded to several 911 calls that reported a Rolls-Royce driving erratically on the 215 freeway in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday evening. As they approached the car, it was reported that there was a frantic, bloody woman in the front seat crying for help. After pulling the driver out at gunpoint, he was identified as 40 year old Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Reports state Mayweather was arrested for assault and DUI after he could not recite the alphabet to the arresting officer. “Mr. Mayweather could not comply with our DUI sobriety test,” said Lieutenant Roy Mitchel LVPD. “He told us that its because he doesn’t know the alphabet, not because he was drunk.”
Mayweather stated that “I was learning to run around the ring while ya’ll was learning how to run through the alphabet.”
But that was not convincing enough for police. Mayweather was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center, but later released on a $100,000 bond.
The judge ordered him to house arrest, hearing pending, and also will not allow him to fight on August 26. Full refunds are being issued.
The woman’s identity has not been released.
