Mike Tyson was arrested last night (Wednesday, Nov. 12th) following an altercation with paparazzi in an LAX airport terminal.
Tyson punched the photographer in the face leaving blood everywhere. The photographer later told police that Tyson punched him and he fell to the ground and had to be treated for a cut on his forehead at a nearby hospital.
Tyson was traveling with his wife and his 10 month old child, when he was swarmed by overly aggressive photographers. Tyson claims he acted in self defense to protect his child.
Tyson was then arrested and booked on misdemeanor battery and was later released after posting a $20,000 bail. Tyson is also considering pressing charges on the photographer as well.
