Tyson Released On Bail
After Scuffle With Paparazzi
By William Trillo
Mike Tyson was released by airport police after he was
booked on suspicion of battery against a bottom feeding low
life photographer who has nothing better to do with his time
than to hang out at the Los Angeles International Airport
waiting to pop pictures of traveling celebs.
The former boxer got into a fight in Terminal 7 near a
United Airlines counter Wednesday afternoon. Tyson told
police a photographer struck him in an attempt to provoke
him, while the pond scum photog claimed Tyson allegedly
punched him, grabbed his camera and he went down. The
photographer suffered a "minor laceration to the forehead,"
police said. Awwww, did the picture man get a boo boo?
Tyson was traveling with his 10-month-old daughter, and he
was reprtedly acting in self-defense when he was confronted
by an over aggressive photographer.
Tyson was held briefly in a cell at the airport. He was
later transferred to the 77th Street Station and was booked
on suspicion of battery and released about 8:25 p.m. on
20,000 dollars bail, local reports said.
Tyson filed charges against the photo hack as well and with
the help of a bevy of eyewitnesses and surveillance cameras
we can only hope the photographer will be found to blame.
Hopefully this will put an end to the Paparazzi at LAX.
