Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Just days into his three-month jail sentence, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he wants out, and is asking a judge to grant his request. A local domestic violence group says letting Mayweather out would send the wrong message.
In the emergency motion, Mayweather is asking to serve the remainder of his sentence on house arrest.
Critics say his ritzy mansion in Southern Highlands is a far cry from his current jail cell. Safe Nest, a local domestic violence advocacy group, spoke out on Tuesday.
"That's not a punishment. To be able to sit and be very comfortable in your bed, eating whatever takeout you want," said Lisa Lynn Chapman with Safe Nest.
