As I have said from the beginning, this story seemed a bit fishy.
If Mayweather really did order someone to kidnap and beat down men who he believe stole his jewelry why aren’t the police involved?
The men are leaking X-Rays of broken bones and making a lot of claims, so why isn’t there an investigation?
Now we know thanks to the NY Daily News.
Laura Meltzer, a public information officer for the Las Vegas police, said that so far no victim has come forward to file a criminal report.
“So I’ve been trying to put this rumor to rest all week,” she said in a phone interview. “We’ve had a variety of reports that have come out stating this event occurred. We have not had a victim come forward and make a report like what is being alleged. So if this event occurred, it’s something where the victim has not come forward to the police to make an official complaint.”
As a result, the police, led by the violent crimes unit, have not launched an investigation into the incident.
“As of right now, the bureau commander over there is not aware of any complaint that has been officially filed,” she said. “So again, if this is a victim who is choosing not to come forward and make a report – then that’s up to the victim to do. We don’t have any say in that. There is no criminal complaint on file so there is no reason to go and contact Mr. Mayweather.”
So, until someone goes to the police, I am going to assume this is just a money grab (no pun intended) by some former Mayweather employees.
