Mayweather, others sued by 2 victims of Vegas shooting at skating park
LAS VEGAS (AP) ' Superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is facing a civil lawsuit from two men who say he orchestrated a shooting attack on them two years ago outside a Las Vegas skating rink.
The lawsuit obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press accuses the undefeated fighter, accused shooter Ocie Harris and others of making threats against the alleged victims since the attack.
Lawyers for Mayweather and Harris were not immediately available for comment.
Alleged victims Quincey Williams and Damien Bland say in the lawsuit that they want Mayweather and his associates to stop contacting them, plus money for damages.
Harris has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges in the shooting. His trial is scheduled for February.
Mayweather (41-0) is currently training for a Sept. 17 fight against Victor Ortiz.
