Floyd Mayweather Jr. Burns $100 Bill at Atlanta Club
Floyd Mayweather Burns $100 Bill: That's a Crime
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has money to burn, and he proved it by torching a $100 bill at the Velvet Room nightclub in Atlanta over the weekend.
Floyd Mayweather was partying with Gucci Mane and Lil' Kim when he set the Benjamin alight.
Burning currency is illegal in the US: Floyd Mayweather Jr. faces an investigation by the Secret Service, which is tasked with enforcing that particular law. However, the WBC Super Welterweight Champion shouldn't be too worried.
Since the fine for burning money is only $100 (funnily enough), it's exceedingly unlikely that action will be taken against Mayweather. Still, it's sort of a chump move to burn money in the middle of a recession. After all, $100 could buy maybe four drinks for random strangers at a high-end club.
Perhaps Mayweather should be more worried about Manny Pacquiao, who could ruin his unbeaten record, but that fight is not looking likely anytime soon. Floyd Mayweather faces Victor Ortiz on September 17.
