This just in something happened with Mike Tyson at the ticket counter at LAX. All we know at this time is that Tyson was arrested for battery. I am currently trying to track down details.
Tyson’s career seem to be on the upswing after two appearances on Oprah and a reconciliation with Don King.
But with Mike you knew that at any time he was liable to snap. His mental state is way to fragile.
We do know whatever happened was serious enough to report that it was a bloody incident. Now who blood it was we currently do not know that information.
As always keep coming back for updates on this breaking story.
We now have details of what happened at LAX. Tyson and a photographer got into a verbal alteraction. Tyson says that the photographer provoked him by shoving or pushing him and in turned Tyson punched the photographer in the face causing blood to start pouring from the guys face.
Both the Photographer and Tyson wanted to press charges so LAPD arrested them both and are currently speaking to witnesses, Tyson and the photographer.
It looks like Tyson may still have it because reports state that Mike put the photographer down with one punch leaving he dazed and confused in the terminal. The photographer was said to be wobbling as he walked out of the airport leaving a trail of blood.
As we get more details we will update you.
Tyson’s spokeswoman Tammy Brook says the boxer was traveling with his wife and 10-month-old child Wednesday afternoon when he was attacked by an overly aggressive paparazzi.
Brook says he acted in self-defense to protect his child.
After being detained Tyson was allowed to leave with no bail while the prosecutor looks over the case. Tyson was on his way to Europe when the altercation took place and was allowed to continue on his trip. From all the information I have received it was the photographer who instigated the incident and not Tyson. We will see if any charges will be handed down in the case.
Witnesses report the photographer pushed or shove Tyson three times before Tyson KOed him. I think the photographer should be bought up on charges.
