Mike Tyson, a former heavyweight boxer, struck a fellow aircraft passenger who “threw a water bottle at him,” according to Tyson’s publicist.

Onboard video shows Tyson leaning over his seat and punching an unnamed man repeatedly. Mike Tyson had a “incident with an angry passenger” who was “harassing him,” according to a representative for the boxing legend. Two people were temporarily held when police were sent. One individual was treated for non-life threatening injuries at San Francisco International Airport.

In a statement, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department said, “That individual provided minimal specifics of the incident and declined to cooperate further with the police investigation.” “Pending further inquiry,” both people were released. Neither of the individuals involved was identified by the department. The attack happened on a JetBlue flight before it took off from San Francisco to Florida on Wednesday night.

The video, which was released by TMZ, does not show the complete altercation and does not include a water bottle. Tyson had agreed to snap a picture with the passenger at the start of the flight, according to TMZ. Despite Tyson’s efforts to “relax,” the man continued to torment him.

Another person can be heard shouting out “hey Mike, Mike” in an apparent attempt to calm Tyson as another person tries to push him away in the video shows Tyson striking his fellow passenger. The passenger’s forehead is next shown, which appears to be bloodied. “We are aware of video that may have captured the event,” the San Francisco Police Department said. The video was forwarded to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, which is in charge of the investigation.

Tyson has a history of violence both in and out of the ring. He was convicted of rape in 1992 and sentenced to three years in jail. After biting off a piece of his opponent’s ear in a fight in 1997, he was disqualified. Following an automobile collision in Maryland in 1998, Tyson pled no guilty to a misdemeanor assault.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, more than 7,000 rowdy passenger incidents have been reported in the United States since February 2021, with 70% of them involving masking laws.
