Los Angeles, California — Former boxing champ Mike Tyson was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge after a scuffle with a celebrity photographer who was following him at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday afternoon, police said.
Tyson, 43, allegedly landed one punch to the head of the paparazzo, sending him to the floor at the United Airlines ticket counter, airport police Sgt. Jim Holcomb said.
The photographer was taken to a hospital for treatment of a cut suffered when he hit the floor, Holcomb said.
The photographer and Tyson were placed under citizen’s arrest on misdemeanor battery complaints filed by each against the other, he said.
