Mike Tyson Shows Fans He Can Still Get Arrested Like a Champ

November 12, 2009

Anybody who thinks Mike Tyson is an overweight, past-his-prime deadbeat forced to make cameos in Bradley Cooper movies got a wake up call last night, when the "baddest man on the planet" went toe-to-toe with a tabloid cameraman and almost won the fight.

According to reports, the 43-year-old former heavyweight champ (who was arrested for misdemeanor assault) hit the unsuspecting photographer in the Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday night following an argument (that was likely about global politics or immigration reform).

Tyson’s public relations team is claiming he acted in self-defense, and is confident that the court system (which he now has a frequent flyer card for) will find him innocent of all charges.

Good luck, Mike. Somebody’s got to go around punching people - and it might as well be you.
