Mike Tyson on Why He Beat Up Career Criminal Melvin Townsend III on JetBlue Flight

People need to leave Mike Tyson alone.

With that being said, Tyson is right when he talks about how he shouldn’t be flying commercial flights anymore. Flying private jets though is expensive and Tyson is much better at handling his money these days.

The DA isn’t going to charge Tyson so he can freely talk about what happened when he put his hands on a man for bothering him on a JetBlue flight.

Here is what he had to say via TMZ Sports.

Mike Tyson finally broke his silence about his confrontation on a JetBlue flight with an out-of-control passenger, and one thing’s clear … he’s really pissed over what went down.

Mike was on his ‘Hotboxin’ podcast and was clearly relieved the San Mateo County D.A. decided not to charge Mike for battery. As you know, the video — obtained by TMZ — shows Mike punching away at the guy after getting harassed even before the plane took off.

Mike says he knows there’s always the chance someone will become “overly excited,” and that’s why his wife has been on him not to fly commercial.

Mike concedes, “I shouldn’t even be taking public planes,” adding, “A bodyguard and a f***ing yes man. What am I gonna do on a plane?”

He admitted situations like the one on JetBlue “trigger me” and he acknowledged ultimately it’s a lose/lose situation.

Of course, the guy like a punk is suing Tyson, I hope that Mike countersues and bankrupts the guy considering he is a long time felon.

The man who got punched by Mike Tyson on a JetBlue plane has a long criminal record … TMZ has learned.

His name — Melvin Townsend, III, and this isn’t his first encounter with cops, by any means. He’s been convicted of fraud, grand theft, burglary, possession of controlled substances and trafficking in stolen property.

As for specifics, the 36-year-old broke onto a property in 2018 and stole a trailer that he hitched to his pickup. The drug possession offense was for oxycodone. Official docs don’t mention other specifics. He served time twice — one for 20 months and another time for 15 months.
