â†µAccording to reports, Floyd was at the skating rink on Sunday night with two associates, one who is named Jackie Ray Jones and one who goes by the handle “O.C.” Floyd, evidently got into an argument with a 24-year-old man, Quincey Williams, and Williams claims that Floyd threatened him. Less than an hour later, when Williams and a friend, Damein Bland, were leaving the skating rink, Williams’s BMW was peppered with gunfire. No one was hit. â†µâ†µ
â†µIn a story at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Bland claims that as he was leaving the rink, he saw Floyd and his two cohorts standing in the parking lot next to Floyd’s Rolls Royce. He says that he saw O.C. reach towards his groin area, and soon after heard gunshots. When he looked in the direction of the Rolls, he saw O.C. pointing a gun and shooting at them. â†µâ†µ
â†µThe Las Vegas police have stated that the boxer is not a suspect in the case and that they are currently seeking the man known as O.C in connection with the shooting. For his part, Mayweather claims that he does not know any such person and knows nothing about the incident. â†µâ†µ
â†µYou wonder, though, how long he’ll be able to go with that story when one of the two victims is positive ID-ing him as being at the scene of the crime standing right next to the shooter. Does this case have the potential to interfere with the Mayweather/Marquez bout on September 19? Time will tell. I certainly suspect that we haven’t heard the last of it. â†µâ†µ
