Mike Tyson ARRESTED For Battery!

Mike Tyson FLOORED a paparazzo at LAX airport this evening!  Reportedly, he was traveling with his 10 month old daughter when a pap got way too close to his face.  Mike gave dude one good shot to the dome and blood was everywhere.  Tyson was then arrested for battery.  Here's the lowdown:
We're told Tyson was at a ticket counter at the United Airlines terminal when the incident occurred. The photographer got punched in the face, hit the ground, got up and began walking, leaving a trail of blood. Someone at the scene tells TMZ ... the photographer got very close to Tyson before the boxer struck him. Our guy on the scene says there's blood on the ground and Mike was taken away in a squad car. We're told an ambulance was dispatched at 4:39 PM to LAX -- we're told the paparazzo was transported to a local hospital. If Tyson is prosecuted, given that he's a former boxing champ, the charge could end up being assault with a deadly weapon. UPDATE: Tyson's rep says he was traveling with his 10-month old child when he was attacked by an overly aggressive paparazzi -- adding the boxer acted in self-defense to protect his child.

These paps are wildin' the hell out these days...
UPDATE: Mike pressed charges as well and the pap was arrested for aggravated assault.

imnotthatstoopid: From now

imnotthatstoopid: From now on, every woman that gets with this dude is on notice. He has a LONG history of being violent (especially towards women). Plus he’s the former heavyweight champion of the world…so date him @ your own risk. I just hope the next time he doesn’t kill someone. add to that the porn movies, and those may have taken place after the babies/ relationship...plenty of red flags here. if he's famous and your a little young, your first step is a google search, include all the above terms. her face still looks even on both sides...good for her. but, yes this is not a good sign for mike. kanye does it, and i wouldn't necessarily see trouble. but, to mike a beat down might be like crack or lays potato chips. hope he can slow his roll because unfortunately there will always be some woman without the highest of standards trying to couple with him.

I'm with Mike on this one. The paps need to learn how to keep a safe distance from these people, there is such thing as zoom on cameras. We love to see the pics of these people, but sometimes they just get too close for comfort.

I know ppl will say he was

I know ppl will say he was only defending himself-but this is a pattern w/ him. He's REALLY going to hurt someone critically one day...I just hope it's not his wife or child next time. Mike can't control his impulses. I mean, if the pap was getting too close...he could've PUSHED him away instead of hitting. There's something in the law called 'mutual combat'...you can't punch someone out if you're annoyed w/ them, else everybody would be punching everyone else.

it wasnt recently, maybe like

it wasnt recently, maybe like 6 months ago, but losing a child is the worse....wat waz even badder waz that he got married lyk a week after her death.....i agree the papz r 2 harsh and dont give celebs a break, but we all kno mike aint got it all either.. HOTNESS!!!!!!!: Tyson just lost one of his kids so we all know dude is on the edge. The Pap’s don’t need 2 be close b/c they have those expensive ass cameras. There needs to be some laws 2 protect celebs.

They were both arrested and

They were both arrested and both want to press charges against each other. Some witnesses back up Mike's story, some back up the sleazy paparazzi dude. Either way, Mike will be OK. He was warned and he kept being an asshole, so that's why Mike knocked him the fuck out. Seriously, paparazzi need to stop violating these celebrities' space...especially when they're with their children.

Normally I don't condone

Normally I don't condone violence, but I'm glad Mike decked that paparazzo. These paparazzo need to learn a lesson. They can't go around disrespecting people's personal space, even if they're celebrities. I hope Mike does not do jail time for this. He's just turning his life around and has been through a lot this year already (death of his young daughter). Perhaps he's still grieving. Give Mike a break!

I see these paps and think how in the world could I deal with that invasion of privacy all the damn time!? I know, as a celebrity it comes with the territory, but those men be all up in peoples faces, flashing those cameras right in their eyes and they could care less about the children. I remember Julia Roberts was taking her kids to a fast food place and the paps were all around the car. She parked it, got out, and confronted them and made them get back. It really does seem like they try to cause some kind of altercation just to get a juicy story; wasn't clooney trying to get some anti-pap law passed? They need one.

also--and no pun

also--and no pun intended--but i hope mike doesn't unnecessarily beat himself up over this. he seems very remorseful of his past and ashamed of his reputation, but i believe he deserves a fresh start, and people make mistakes. i don't condone violence or anything, but in this case, that paparazzo probably made the mistake.

um... i feel like that pap

um... i feel like that pap was trying to make Mike react on purpose. these white people are a trip, honey. and yes, i'm just going to assume he's white. because i really don't expect a black person to just get all the hell up in somebody's (esp. Mike Tyson and his 10 month old's) face like that without EXPECTING a beatdown.

Paps really need to be more

Paps really need to be more respectful when people are with their children. If a guy with a camera gets close enough to you when your with you baby, what would you do? Celeb or not. There needs to be laws that protect celebrities against paps because they are getting bolder and bolder. Why does anyone need to be close enough to someone where they could knock them out unless you are standing in line somewhere. Even then you are supposed to give someone a little bit of space (I hate when people are all up on me at the grocery store). And assault with a deadly weapon is ridiculous. Yes, he's a boxer, so what. Its not like he's some bruce lee and went all out ninja on that guy. He punched him, just like anyone could punch someone (with much more knockout power of course). But just give the man space.

I doubt many people feel

I doubt many people feel sympathetic towards the annoying paparazzi. His job is to harass and stalk people and completely invade their privacy. This one got a little too close to the wrong person. If you ask me, someone got what he deserves! I just really hope he doesn't get a big fat settlement which will just encourage the stupidity and aggressiveness of his kind but he probably will get paid. Sigh.
