Mike Tyson came to a realization about how he was going to travel around the United States. Since the last obnoxious drunk he beat up on a Jet Blue flight probably won’t be the last person to try to bait him into confrontation and make his life miserable, Tyson is strongly considering Plan B.
“My wife gets mad when I take public planes. What am I going to do on a f****** plane with my friends and [a bodyguard] he’s supposed to watch me? A bodyguard and a f****** yes man. What am I gonna do on a plane? It triggers me.”
How can you blame Iron Mike? He’s a trained professional fighter, programmed to attack. The situation last month was all caught on video, and it was clear the other passenger was trying to get Tyson worked up. The District Attorney saw through Melvin George Townsend III’s actions and declined to press charges.
Here’s more of what Tyson said about the incident on his podcast called Hotboxin.
“Yes, they said they ain’t gonna pick up charges. He was f***ing with me. I took pictures with (Townsend). I shouldn’t even be taking public planes.”
Mike Tyson is a legend. Taking advantage of the controlled environment of a private plane will keep stress, obnoxious hecklers and any potential legal problems out of his life.
