TMZ posted footage earlier today showing Mike Tyson repeatedly punching a fellow JetBlue passenger.
The 54-year-old heavyweight champion was said to be travelling from San Francisco to Florida on Wednesday to attend a marijuana industry event in Miami on Thursday night.
Tyson initially chatted with the man, who appears in the video to be extremely intoxicated, and his friend as they boarded the plane. He even took a selfie with the man.
But after the man, who was sat directly behind Tyson, refused to quiet down, Tyson became irritated, hitting the man a number of times and leaving him with a bloody forehead.
Representatives for Tyson told TMZ that the passenger was “aggressive” and “harassed” the boxer before throwing a water bottle at him.

According to reports, Tyson left the plane after the altercation, and the alleged victim received medical treatment for his injuries.
The man later reported the incident to police the San Francisco Police Department who told TMZ Sports that officers responded to the scene and detained two people believed to have been involved in the incident.
