Read the Arrest Warrant

A Las Vegas judge issued a warrant for Mayweather's arrest on Dec. 8. The warrant required Mayweather to turn himself in or face arrest.

The battery allegation stems from a Nov. 15 confrontation over parking tickets between the undefeated champion and a security guard outside Mayweather's home.

Mayweather had been free on bail on unrelated felony charges stemming from a September dispute with the mother of his children.
