He was charged with a misdemeanor battery complaint for allegedly poking a security guard in the face.
Mayweather remained in custody early Friday at the Clark County Detention Center.
The Nov. 15 confrontation was over parking tickets and Mayweather faces six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
Mayweather had been free after posting bail on unrelated felony charges following his arrest in a September dispute with his children and their mother.
As a boxer he is 41-0 as a pro but has fought just three times since December 2007.
He was in negotiations last year to fight Manny Pacquiao but the deal fell apart. Said Pacquiao on Friday: "He's facing so many problems. I hope he solves them soon so he could go back to the ring."
