Boxer Mike Tyson repeatedly punched a man on a JetBlue flight scheduled to take off from San Francisco Wednesday night.
The passenger was reportedly intoxicated and wouldn’t stop taunting and provoking Mike Tyson.
After asking the passenger to ‘chill,’ Tyson, 55, lost his cool and began punching the man in the face.
According to TMZ, Mike Tyson walked off the plane after he punched the man.
The passenger received medical attention and went to police to report the incident, TMZ reported.
TMZ Sports has learned … the incident all went down at around 10:30 PM PT as Tyson was slated to fly out of San Francisco International Airport to Florida.
A witness on the plane says as he and his friend were boarding Tyson’s flight … the boxing legend was initially cool with them and the other passengers.
The witness tells us Mike took a selfie with him … and then was patient with his overly excited buddy, who kept trying to talk to the 55-year-old fighter as he sat behind him.
Eventually, though, we’re told Tyson had enough of the guy behind him talking in his ear … and told him to chill. When the guy didn’t, that’s when the witness says Tyson started to throw several punches at the man’s face.
We’re told the man who was punched received medical attention and then went to the police over the incident. We’ve reached out to cops for comment, but so far, no word back yet.
