Has Tyson Officially Gone Loco–Or Was This Beatdown Justified?
I'm sure many of you have heard about the latest Mike Tyson incident by now. For those of you that haven't, it's pretty crazy. Apparently, the new "pro-marijuana" Iron Mike has not gotten any mellower.
TMZ Sports reports that evidently, Mike Tyson blew his cool Wednesday night on an airplane that hadn't even lifted off the ground yet, repeatedly punching a fellow passenger who was annoying him.
What exactly went down? Some reports differ. Tyson's reps claim that the passenger wouldn't leave Tyson alone and reportedly even threw a water bottle at him. Who knows? Maybe the passenger joked about Tyson's(or Jada Pinkett Smith's) hair.
Reps from Tyson's camp also said the passenger was allegedly "drunk". There is a video of the incident, but it doesn't show a lot happening. It certainly does not show a water bottle being thrown.
Tyson was seated on the airplane waiting for takeoff, heading to Miami for a marijuana convention when some idiot starts bothering him from the seat behind him. It reached the point where apparently, Tyson couldn't take it anymore and started clobbering him.
The incident remains under investigation. Police say the passenger was treated for "non-life-threatening" injuries and didn't really cooperate with the investigation. For more on the whole crazy incident, visit TMZ's website here.
