ROBERT GUERRERO CAUGHT WITH GUN IN AIRPORT
According to the New York Post, Robert Guerrero was caught with a Smith & Wesson gun at New York's Kennedy Airport as he was trying to catch a flight to Las Vegas. Guerrero, of course, is scheduled to fight pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather on May 4th in the biggest fight of the first half of 2013. Guerrero was in New York to appear on the 700 Club televison show and discuss his Christian faith. At the very least, this arrest will provide a distraction to Guerrero's prepration for the biggest fight of his career.

Joint Statement from Team Guerrero, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions: Early this morning [...] Robert Guerrero was checking in his luggage at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, bound for Las Vegas, and, as he was doing so, made sure to advise the authorities that they needed to be aware that he had a firearm, which was unloaded and in a locked safe box with his luggage to be checked. Guerrero was carrying no ammunition and was within his legal right to possess such firearm in the state in which he resides [Editor's Note: but not in New York]. He was then arrested. At an arraignment held before the New York State Supreme Court for Queens County, the court, after hearing the pertinent facts of the case, released Guerrero on his own recognizance. The next hearing in this matter is scheduled for after Robert's May 4 fight against [...] Floyd "Money" Mayweather. We are very pleased Robert Guerrero was released on his own recognizance this afternoon in the wake of this incident and that he is on his way back to Las Vegas to continue training for his highly anticipated May 4 bout against Mayweather.
