Mike Tyson will not face charges stemming from the plane incident caught in the video.
The San Mateo County District Attorney’s office told ET, the DA’s office decided not to file any charges against the former world heavyweight champion “based on the circumstances surrounding the confrontation.” Those circumstances include “the conduct of the victim that led to the incident, conversations between Mr. Tyson and the victim, as well as requests from both the victim and Mr. Tyson that no charges be filed in this case.”
It all stems from the April 20 incident when Tyson boarded a JetBlue flight in San Francisco for Florida. tmz Posted two videos of the alleged incident, which purportedly showed Tyson physically confronting a passenger shortly after boarding the plane.
The outlet reported that, initially, Tyson took a selfie with the man sitting behind him, but the man in question was overly excited and things reportedly took a turn when the boxing legend got fed up, leading to a physical confrontation.
“Unfortunately, there was an incident on Mr. Tyson’s flight with an aggressive passenger who started harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while in his seat,” Tyson’s representative told ET at the time.
A spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department told ET, officers assigned to its airport bureau were sent to physically brawl in an airplane. The spokesman said that when officers arrived, officers detained two subjects who are believed to have been involved in the incident.
One subject was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries. The spokesman said the subject was given minimal details of the incident and declined to cooperate further with the investigation. Both subjects were released pending further investigation. Officials did not disclose the names of the two subjects taken into custody.
The SFPD said it was aware of the video that probably captured the incident, which emerged after a preliminary investigation. That video was sent to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The DA’s office told ET that it had reviewed the police report and video, but now considers the matter closed.
