Mayweather Court Date in Las Vegas Postponed

LAS VEGAS --  Trial has been postponed to Sept. 1 for Floyd Mayweather Jr. on a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from allegations he poked a homeowner security guard in the face during an argument outside Mayweather's Las Vegas home.

Clark County District Court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said Mayweather didn't appear in person Monday while his lawyer asked a Las Vegas justice of the peace to push back the trial date.

The 34-year-old undefeated professional boxer also faces a court date later this week on unrelated and more serious felony charges stemming from a domestic argument with his ex-girlfriend and two of their children last September.

The misdemeanor case stems from allegations Mayweather poked the 21-year-old association guard during an argument in November about parking tickets in the gated community where Mayweather lives.

Charity Event Set to Help Pet Group Facing Foreclosure

Charity Event Set to Help Pet Group Facing Foreclosure

Henderson Restaurant Supply will partner with Adopt a Rescue Pet (ARP) on a silent auction and raffle fundraiser at 6 p.m. on April 28 at Tommy Rocker’s Mojave Beach Bar & Grill, 4275 Dean Martin Dr.

ARP has a $70,000 balloon payment due May 1, and proceeds from the event will assist in meeting the $70,000 obligation. Closure of the sanctuary would be disastrous to the approximately 300 pets in the ARP program that would be immediately displaced and may face euthanasia if not re-homed, not to mention pets that need placement in the future that might have nowhere to go. Any funds raised over and above the necessary $70,000 will be allocated to veterinary care for animals entering into ARP programs or awaiting medical sterilization prior to adoption.

Event organizers are seeking donated auction/raffle items for the event through April 26, including gift baskets, gift/product certificates and services.
