Mike Tyson will not face any criminal charges in the on-flight punching incident last month, TMZ reported.
The boxing champion was seen on video repeatedly punching a man who emerged with a bloodied face after Tyson exited a JetBlue Airways plane on April 20. Witness accounts indicate the man reportedly threw a water bottle at Tyson who had moments earlier posed with fans and had taken his seat on a flight headed to Florida from California.
On Monday (May 9) the San Mateo County District Attorney's office announced that no charges were being brought against Tyson because of "the conduct of the victim leading up to the incident, the interaction between Mr. Tyson and the victim, as well as the requests of both the victim and Mr. Tyson.
