According to multiple reports, Guerrero, 30, was arrested after trying to bring an unloaded gun onto a Delta flight bound for Las Vegas. The New York Post reported that the gun was a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson semi-automatic. However, the local NBC affiliate reported the gun was a 9 mm Smith & Wesson. Guerrero had no ammunition with him.
Charges against Guerrero, who was in New York to promote his fight with Mayweather, are pending.
Showtime spokesman Chris DeBlasio said the network would decline comment at this time.
Guerrero appeared on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club" on Monday along with his wife, Casey. He spoke openly of his Christian faith and of how he got through his wife's life-threatening illness. On Tuesday, he had a news conference with New York area media.
Stephen Espinoza, the executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports, lauded Guerrero at the Tuesday news conference.
We wanted to make sure the East Coast knew about Robert, knew how classy he is and how wonderful he is as an individual.
More to come on this as more details become available.
