Tyson Arrested Again… But Was He Justified?
Word on the street is that Mike Tyson was recently arrested for battery. But there’s a twist in this seemingly regular re-occurring story in the former champ’s life. Read more after the jump.
A paparazzo got too close to the knockout king as Mike Tyson was arriving in LAX airport last night. The reformed warrior gave the dude a good shot to the domepiece and according to YBF, blood was everywhere. The end result is Mike Tyson arrested for battery.
TMZ said that the photog got very close to Tyson before the boxer struck him. The police hauled him away in a squad car and an ambulance was dispatched to LAX, where the paparazzo was taken to the local hospital. Mike could be charged with assault with a deadly weapon, given the man’s reputation and history with his hands.
But was it as unprovoked as it seems? Tyson’s rep said that the family man was traveling with his 10-month old child and his wife while the event transpired. Self-defense to protect his child? Or shades of the old Tyson coming out?
