According to a criminal complaint, police were dispatched to Highway 32, just north of County Line Road in Mount Pleasant following a report of a man who had been shot.

There were three men at the scene. The complaint indicates one man appeared to be in shock. A second appeared to have a graze wound to his calf. The third man was sitting in the median with a shirt on his face — screaming that he’d been shot in the face. All three were taken to the hospital.

The complaint indicates a large amount of glass was found at the scene, along with the black plastic backing to a driver’s side mirror.

At the hospital, it was determined these men hadn’t been shot, but were instead hurt in a crash.

Kenosha County Sheriff’s officials were soon notified of a suspicious vehicle in the backyard of a home in Somers, with damage to its front windshield. Police responded to the scene, ad noted that the windshield had an impression in the broken glass similar to the size of a person’s head. The driver’s side front and rear windows were broken, and officers noticed what appeared to be blood embedded in the broken front windshield.

According to the complaint, investigators learned Mayweather had been cited in this vehicle on several occasions. The vehicle was found registered to a man who is nearly 100 years old. It was learned Mayweather was the primary driver of this vehicle, and had left home prior to 7:00 a.m. on September 20th.

Mayweather was interviewed on September 20th, and said he was driving to work around 4:30 a.m. when he “hit something, but he did not see what it was.” Mayweather said he “didn’t know he had hit a person until he saw the news.”
