London:Retired American boxer Mike Tyson is in trouble again after he allegedly punched a photographer at the Los Angeles airport.

The 43-year-old was en route to Las Vegas when a celebrity photographer began taking his picture at the United Airlines terminal, reports people.com

“The two men got into a scuffle and it’s alleged that Tyson punched the photographer in the face, causing him to fall to the ground,” said Jim Holcomb, a policeman.

“The photographer sustained a laceration to the forehead and was taken to a local hospital,” he added.

Officers arrived on the scene and detained Tyson, who was booked at a nearby police station, according to police records.

Tyson was reportedly travelling with his wife and 10-month-old child.

In July 1991, Tyson was arrested for raping 18-year-old Desiree Washington, Miss Black Rhode Island, in a hotel room.

Six years later he got in trouble again for biting Evander Holyfield on both of his ears during a boxing match.
