Floyd Mayweather free from Jail but, his ex-bodyguard sentenced to prison for shooting.
A former bodyguard for champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced to prison Tuesday for shooting at two men outside a roller rink.
Ocie Harris, 30, of Chicago, was sentenced to a two- to five-year prison term.
He pleaded guilty in April to two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of firing a weapon into a vehicle. Under his Alford plea, Harris did not admit guilty but acknowledged prosecutors could prove their case against him.
Before being sentenced, Harris apologized and said he thought he saw a gun.
There was no evidence the victims had a gun.
Harris shot at a BMW carrying Quincey Williams and Damein Bland in August 2009 as the car left the Crystal Palace parking lot on Boulder Highway, authorities said. The car was hit six times.
The victims said the shooting occurred after Mayweather threatened Williams' life over insulting text messages. No one was injured, and Mayweather was never charged.
