Mike Tyson did it again, please excuse our quoting Britney Spears on this, (although she too, did it again, by getting a speeding ticket). Tyson’s life revolves around violence, professionally but once every too often, he has let this violence spill into his personal life.
On Wednesday night, he seemed to have lost his infamous temper yet again, on an overly excited passenger who allegedly would not leave him alone. So he left with a bloodied face instead.
Mike Tyson Told Passenger To Chill
According to TMZ, the incident happened around 10:30 PM PT as the former undisputed heavyweight champion, 55, was preparing to fly from San Francisco to Florida, out of San Francisco International Airport. A witness says that he and his friend spotted Tyson on the JetBlue flight, who seemed to be okay with all the attention he got from them, as well as the other passengers.
The witness told TMZ that Tyson even took selfies with him but his super-excited friend would not leave Tyson alone and kept badgering him, trying to talk to him. Eventually, the heavyweight champion told the guy to “chill” but when he didn’t, Tyson got up and began to throw some punches.
Eventually, the overexcited fan was left bloodied and bruised, and many of the said punches have been captured in a video, playing below.

The witness told TMZ that after the incident, Tyson walked off the plane just seconds later. The man who was punched received medical attention and then went to the police, although there has been no word of any charges brought forward against Tyson for the moment.
Instagram has gone off the funnier end, with comments like, “I know Will Smith like thank you, Mike, for taking the media spotlight off me lol” and “Making Tyson angry in a closed space might not be the smartest thing!”
It’s Been A Strange Week For Mike Tyson
Just last week, on Friday’s installment of “The Joe Rogan Experience”, Tyson floated some bizarre theories. The pair first lit up two separate joints while sitting across from each other at Rogan’s podcasting table, and amidst the smoky high, Tyson told Rogan that “whatever you think a human did to another human being – it happened. Whatever it is, it happened.”
