Mike Tyson arrested at LA airport

Thursday November 12, 2009

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has been arrested after an alleged scuffle with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.

The photographer - who police say 43-year-old Mike struck over the head - left the conflict with a cut on his skull.

Boxer Mike was taken to an LA poilce station where he was booked on suspicion of battery and later released.

"He was very cooperative. There were no issues," said Lt. Aaron McCraney.

It's the latest incident in what's been a difficult year for Mike. In May, his four-year-old daughter tragically died after an accident at home.
