On April 20, the former fighter and a global legend was on a JetBlue flight to Fort Lauderdale when a fellow passenger began harassing him. Eventually, the retired boxer had enough and jumped to his feet to punch the man in the face. A viral video shows the man who provoked the attack with a bloody gash on his forehead.
TMZ Sports originally reported on the incident, claiming the witness was the victim’s friend and noted that Tyson walked off the flight moments after the beat down. The good news, for Tyson anyway, is that authorities aren’t looking to charge him.
Steve Wagstaffe, the District Attorney of San Mateo County, noted the passenger’s actions provoked Tyson to attack him, according to the Daily Wire. The same report also shows police decided not to pursue charges against either of the two men.
Would you be crazy enough to go after a guy like Tyson — a man who fought in the ring 58 times with 50 wins, 6 losses, and 2 ties?
