Video shows Mike Tyson in physical altercation aboard JetBlue flight

Video recorded on a JetBlue flight shows former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson in a physical altercation with a person who representatives for Tyson claimed was harassing him.

The brief clip, first published Thursday by TMZ Sports, shows Tyson appearing to try to punch someone who’s pushing him away.

In the video, someone can be heard saying, “Mike, Mike.”

Representatives for Tyson, 55, said in a statement that he had an incident on a flight with another passenger who “began harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat.”

The airline declined to comment. The video did not show what occurred before the altercation.

The second passenger has not been identified.

San Francisco police said in a statement that officers interviewed two people at the airport’s domestic terminal Wednesday night for a report that they had been in an altercation on a flight.

The statement, which does not name Tyson, said one of the people was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The person offered few details about what happened and refused to cooperate with authorities, the statement said.

No one was arrested, the statement said.
