Mike Tyson Punches a Drunken Man on a Plane

Heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson on last Wednesday night seemed to lose his cool on a plane repeatedly punching a man in the face after the guy had apparently annoyed him.

According to witnesses on the flight from San Francisco to Florida, Tyson was initially cool. But after many times being provoked by the man sitting behind, the 55-year-old former boxer lost his control.

The man’s face was bruised and bleeding heavily after getting Tyson’s blow. When the plane landed, the man needed medical attention and reported the incident to the local police.

According to reports, Tyson was not arrested and still attended an event in Miami on April 21. A representative for Tyson that a drunk passenger on the plane threw a water bottle at Tyson when he was denied a photo.
