Tyson in scuffle at LA airport
Friday 13 November 2009
Police are investigating conflicting accounts of an airport scuffle between Mike Tyson and a photographer that resulted in both men being questioned and released on suspicion of battery.
The former heavyweight boxing champion and the photographer Tony Echevarria, 50, want to press charges against each other.
Echevarria claims Tyson struck him once, said a police spokesman at Los Angeles International Airport. The photographer fell and was treated for a cut to his forehead at a hospital. Police were checking to see if there was surveillance video of the incident.
"I've heard people were following him into the men's room and trying to take his picture there," said Tyson's defence attorney, David Chesnoff. "My advice to him is going to be to vigorously press charges against what everyone agrees are ridiculously aggressive photographers."
