Mayweather associate sentenced for shooting

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, August 29- A Las Vegas judge sentenced an associate of Floyd Mayweather to jail time on Tuesday for shooting at two men who had a dispute with the American boxer.

Judge Douglas Herndon jailed Ocie Harris for two to five years after he fired seven shots on August 2009 at two men sitting in a BMW sedan in a parking lot outside the Crystal Palace Skate Center.

The 30-year-old Harris pleaded no contest to three felony charges. The majority of the shots hit the car but neither Damein Bland or his passenger Quincey Williams were seriously injured.

The 35-year-old undefeated boxer Mayweather was not charged in the case.

Police said the dispute stemmed from a text that Williams sent to Mayweather, saying he hoped he would lose a upcoming title fight.

Las Vegas police seized handguns, ammunition and bulletproof vests from Mayweather’s home after the shooting at the roller skating facility, but did not find the gun that was used.

Mayweather was released from a Las Vegas jail earlier this month after he served two months following his guilty plea in a domestic assault case.
