Watch: Video Shows Mike Tyson Punching Airplane Passenger
Mike Tyson reportedly punched a man in the face multiple times on a plane Wednesday night.
According to TMZ, the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. PT as Tyson was flying out of San Francisco to Florida. The witness said Tyson was initially friendly with him, his friend and the other passengers, but after the witness took a selfie with Tyson and his friend kept trying to talk to the retired boxing legend, things changed.
TMZ said the witness’ friend was told to “chill,” but he didn’t and that’s when Tyson reportedly threw several punches to the man’s face.
The video shows the events leading up to Tyson throwing the flurry of blows. Tyson reportedly walked off the plane seconds after.
The man received medical attention and went to the police.
Sources close to Tyson said the man was “extremely intoxicated and wouldn’t stop provoking the boxer in his seat,” TMZ reported.
