I would've paid $50 to see him knock the guy out in 30 seconds (again)!

Maybe he was trying to take his pet lion onto the plane as an "emotional support animal"

Fox Sports Article

"Tyson was being held at the airport police station and will be booked and released later, Holcomb said.

"Right now he is very compliant, very cooperative. He's just waiting in one of our holding cells," he said.

The photographer will also be booked once he is released from the hospital, police said."

I pretty much guessed that would be the outcome. Not the world's brightest photographer, eh?

Maybe the Papparazzo told Tyson "I want your heart. I want to eat your children." After all, the meals on UA aren't that filling.

Drat. If Mike had been videoed going through the LAX checkpoint without removing his shoes, TSA would have to announce another sudden change of policy!
