Floyd Mayweather not charged for allegedly putting son in chokehold

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather was not charged by police for allegedly putting his “adopted” son in a chokehold on Halloween last year.

The Sun reports that previously unseen police reports show that 19-year-old Devion Cromwell accused the boxer of putting him in a rear naked choke hold on Oct. 31, 2014. Cromwell is the son of Melissia Brim, who is the mother of one of Floyd’s four children (a daughter named Iyanna). Though Cromwell is not Mayweather’s son, he apparently has treated the boy as his own. Melissia is intimately involved in Floyd’s life to this day as the boxer takes financial care of her family.

According to The Sun, Mayweather showed up at Brim’s home on Halloween and told Cromwell’s friends to leave. Cromwell apparently shot back and told Floyd he wasn’t his father, which allegedly led Mayweather to get physical.

The Sun reports that some family members were encouraging Cromwell to press charges against Mayweather, but the boy did not.

“We are desperate for Devion to do what’s right and bring Floyd to justice,” a source told The Sun. “That isn’t what we want but just because he’s a multi-millionaire it doesn’t mean he can wash his hands and get away with it.”

Floyd apparently did get away with it. TMZ says no charges were filed and the case was closed after the boy stopped cooperating. Mayweather most likely paid to make the issue go away.

Mayweather has twice been involved in domestic violence incidents with Brim, once for an alleged brutal beating in 2001, and another incident in 2012, so you can add this to the long list of incidents where Mayweather has dodged charges.
