Video appears to show Mike Tyson punching another air traveler

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was caught on camera appearing to punch a passenger while waiting for a flight departing San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday, news reports said.

Tyson, 55, appears to punch the man, seated behind him on the JetBlue flight, repeatedly as someone yells at him to stop, according to video posted by TMZ. The video was recorded around 10:30 p.m. on the flight to Florida.

Prior to the altercation, the unidentified passenger can be seen on the video repeatedly gesturing at Tyson, asking him unintelligible questions. A witness told TMZ that Tyson was cordial to the passenger when boarding and later apparently told him to calm down.

In another part of the video, Tyson is standing in his seat, hitting the person with his fists as he leans into the seat. Someone shouts, “Hey, hey, Mike. Stop it, man.

TMZ reported that Tyson got off the plane a few minutes later.

The last segment of the video shows the same passenger sitting in his seat with a bloody forehead.

JetBlue and Tyson management did not immediately respond to request for comment.
