Iron Mike; Photo - APOkay, so Mike Tyson won't give an autograph when you see him at the Brooklyn Marriott. Do you really think the best to do is to follow him, say you have a gun, and attack with him a stanchion? Some drunk knuckleheads tried to start a scuffle with the odd boxer Saturday morning in Brooklyn, and of course Tyson fought back. The idiots, two men and a woman, and Tyson were arrest, and Tyson was recently released on his own recognizance. The Daily News says that Tyson was charged with third degree assault. The other two were going to be charged with "menacing and second- and third-degree harassment," and were pretty badly beaten up; one of them also had an "outstanding New York City warrant for kidnapping." Class.

Gothamist doesn't (always) support violence, but these jerks had it coming - who attacks Mike Tyson? Let's consider some that Tyson is a man who recently said he didn't rape but now would like to rape his accuser Desiree Washington. And he's said, about the media, so of course it got incredible play, "I wish that you guys had children so I could kick them in the (expletive) head or stomp on their testicles so you could feel my pain because that's the pain I have waking up every day."

A Mike Tyson fan club, other crazy shit he says, an amazing Joyce Carol Oates profile of Tyson in 1986 (she compares him to Kasper Hauser, the wild child of Bavaria), his career record, and a psychiatric evaluation.
