Images shot by some passengers and later circulated on social media show how the former universal heavyweight champion strikes the parishioner, who simply tries to conceal his body after feeling the ferocity of “Iron Mike’s” fists.
When word got out, the 55-year-old famed fighter was chastised for his supremacy over a perceived weaker opponent.
Furthermore, the incident was reported to the authorities, which led to the case being brought to court. However, it appears that the parties have reached an arrangement to avoid a trial.
“The victim’s behavior prior to the incident, Mr. Tyson’s relationship with the victim, and the victim’s and Mr. Tyson’s requests,” he added.
Nonetheless, everyone concerned gave in to avoid going to trial, and the beaten man’s legal counsel accepted Tyson’s defense’s offer of a settlement.
The boxer’s attorneys, David Z. Chesnoff, Richard A. Schonfeld, and Martin A. Sabelli, commended the authorities for their hard work and flexibility in not making matters more problematic.
“We appreciate the meticulous, diligent, and professional efforts of San Mateo District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, San Mateo County Sheriff, and all law enforcement involved in this investigation,” the statement stated.
Meanwhile, Mike Tyson awaited the outcome, fearing that a sanction would be imposed that would harm his reputation.
