Police were called to Mayweather, Jr.'s Las Vegas home on Thursday (09Sep10) after Josie Harris reported an alleged fight.

The boxer was not present when cops arrived.

On Friday (10Sep10), he was tracked down and arrested for allegedly taking personal items belonging to Harris from the residence, according to police. Authorities have not arrested Mayweather Jr. for domestic violence and are expected to submit that case to the District Attorney's office.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Mayweather, Jr. was booked into the Clark County Detention Center at about 10:45 a.m. local time. He was released from Clark County jail a few hours later.

A temporary protection order filed by Harris on Thursday (09Sep10) suggests the boxer punched her in the head, pulled her hair and tried to break her arm after entering her home as she slept.

Harris also accuses Mayweather, Jr. of threatening to kill her in the documents, obtained by TMZ.com.

Harris previously accused Mayweather, Jr. of punching and kicking her while she was seated in a car in Las Vegas in 2003. Charges were filed but dismissed in 2005 after Harris recanted her statement.
