No charges filed against Mike Tyson at victim’s request after he beat up fan who threw bottle at him on plane

No charges will be filed against Mike Tyson after he beat up a fan who threw a water bottle at him on a flight.

San Mateo County District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe announced the decision after Tyson was seen on video attacking an excited fan on a taxiing plane in California in April.

Mr Wagstaffe told TMZ that his office had declined to file charges against the former heavyweight champion 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”.

The video of the incident went viral, showing Tyson punching a man aboard the plane headed for Florida on 20 April.
