Floyd's friend follows jail trail
An associate of Floyd Mayweather has been sent to jail for shooting at two men who had a dispute with the American boxer.
Las Vegas judge Douglas Herndon on Tuesday jailed Ocie Harris for two to five years for firing seven shots at two men sitting in a car in a parking lot.
The 30-year-old Harris pleaded no contest to three felony charges stemming from an incident in August 2009 outside the Crystal Palace Skate Centre.
Most of the shots hit the car but neither Damein Bland nor his passenger, Quincey Williams, was seriously injured.
Police said the dispute stemmed from a text that Williams had sent to Mayweather, saying he hoped he would lose an upcoming title fight.
Las Vegas police seized handguns, ammunition and bulletproof vests from Mayweather's home after the shooting, but did not find the gun that was used.
The 35-year-old undefeated Mayweather was not charged in the case.
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.
