LAS VEGAS -- Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was arrested late Thursday night on a misdemeanor charge of battery.

Police on Friday said Mayweather was arrested at a Las Vegas casino on a warrant that had been issued after an altercation with a security guard outside his gated community last month.

Mayweather was booked into the Clark County jail and was released Friday afternoon on his own recognizance.

Last month, Mayweather was charged with felony counts of coercion, robbery and grand larceny from an alleged domestic dispute in September with the mother of his two children.
