LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson was arrested on Wednesday after a scuffle with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport, police said.
No further details were immediately available.
Tyson, whose nickname was “Iron Mike” during his 1980s boxing heyday, won his first championship title at age 20.
In 1992, Tyson was convicted of sexually assaulting a young woman and spent three years in prison. He tried to mount a comeback, but eventually retired from boxing in 2005. He is 43 years old. (via reuters.com)
