Mike Tyson still remembers how to punch people. Iron Mike was at a ticket counter in LAX when a papparazzo got up in his bidness, and Tyson allegedly struck him. Tyson was released on bail.
[Tony] Echeverria, who described himself as a freelance photographer, told police that Tyson struck him once. The photographer fell to the ground and was treated for a cut to his forehead at a hospital.
Tyson’s spokeswoman Tammy Brook said the boxer was traveling with his wife and 10-month-old child when he was attacked by an overly aggressive paparazzo. “Mike acted in self defense as a father protecting his child,” she said. –AP.
It’s hard to defend a guy that thought getting in Mike Tyson’s face was a good idea. If all he got was a cut on his forehead, he could consider himself lucky. I’d stick my arm in a lion’s cage before I did anything to upset that guy. Even that pigeon knows that it’s better to just go with it and not upset the man. But to be fair, that is a really submissive pigeon.
