One of two things happened in this case.

Either Mayweather put out the hit or Harris to show his loyalty to Mayweather decided to take matters into his own hands. Luckily, no one was killed in the shooting and all things considered Harris is getting off pretty lightly.

The Vegas prosecutors wanted to pin it all on Mayweather, but Harris never turned on him.

An associate of Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced Tuesday to two to five years in prison for shooting at two men in a car after they argued with the champion boxer at a Las Vegas skating center.

Defense lawyer Tom Pitaro argued that prosecutors tried to pressure Harris to implicate the 35-year-old Mayweather in the incident.

Police said the dispute was about a text message Williams sent to Mayweather, saying he hoped the boxer would lose an upcoming fight.

Police claimed Mayweather threatened Williams by saying he could have him “trumped.”

“Ocie Harris had no reason to shoot at these two people other than the beef they had with Floyd Mayweather,” prosecutor Bateman said.

I am sure Harris will be well compensated for his silence whenever he gets out of jail.
