Mike Tyson repeatedly punching a man in the face while on a plane leaving San Francisco International Airport.
TMZ is reporting that Tyson began hitting the man seated behind him on a flight to Florida when the passenger began to bother him. The man was intoxicated, according to media reports.

Tyson once famously bit off part of boxer Evander Holyfield’s ear. He was also convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison, though he was released on parole after three years.
Tyson is no stranger to getting in trouble outside of the ring, however. Most notably, he served nearly three years in prison from 1992 to 1995 after being convicted of rape.
