Guerrero Gun Charges Dismissed
Robert Guerrero pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was given a slap on the wrist.

He fought Floyd Mayweather and Floyd Mayweather won. He also fought the law and the law didn’t win.

Robert Guerrero is a free man. The firearm possession charges that he was facing in connection with his March 28 arrest at Kennedy Airport were dismissed today in New York State Supreme Court for Queens County.

Rather than doing time, the worst case scenario, Guerrero pled guilty to disorderly conduct, aka a slap on the wrist, was fined $250 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service. Fortunately for The Ghost, it need not be Queens.

“I’m pleased that the District Attorney’s Office considered my case carefully and resolved it fairly,” Guerrero said. “I never intended to violate New York law, but I know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Lesson learned. I’m happy this incident is behind me and looking forward to returning to the ring as well as serving my community as ordered by the court.”

God may be in his corner after all.
