Mike Tyson hits airplane passenger provoking him

Mike Tyson was on board a plane to Florida when an intoxicated man had the brilliant idea to start messing with him. You can guess how that might end.

TMZ released a video that shows former professional boxer Mike Tyson hitting a passenger on a plane. A witness told TMZ that Tyson had taken a selfie with the passenger earlier, but that after, he would not stop bothering Tyson.

According to the reports, the passenger, who sat behind Tyson, was intoxicated and continued to provoke him. In the video, you can see Tyson lean over the back of his seat and start punching the man in the head repeatedly.

A representative for Tyson told the Associated Press in an email that the passenger was “aggressive” and “threw a water bottle” at Tyson. Other witnesses on board confirmed that the man was belligerent and acting obnoxiously even before the flight.

The man was treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
