Mike Tyson and photographer arrested during airport fight
Former boxing champion Mike Tyson and a photographer were involved in a fight Wednesday at a Los Angeles airport.
A photographer told police Tyson hit him in the forehead, causing him to fall on the ground. But Tyson’s spokesperson said the boxing legend was with his wife and 10-month-old baby when a photographer attacked him, according to the Associated Press.
The spokesperson said Tyson was acting in self-defense to protect his young child. Tyson was detained in a holding cell at the airport.
The photographer was taken to the hospital, and he was arrested after his emergency room visit, according to the Associated Press.
I’m on the fence about this incident. Tyson is a public figure, so he should recognize he’s going to be hounded by the paparazzi whenever he’s in public.
However, he had his 10-month-old baby with him. The photographer shouldn’t have provoked him or had the camera in his child’s face. Children should be off limits.
