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.
