, Mike Tyson Could Face £350,000 Payout After Alleged Assault on Plane Passenger

Former Heavyweight Champion Admits Wrongdoing

Mike Tyson may have to pay £350,000 to a man who claims he was assaulted by the former boxer on a plane. Tyson admitted to punching the victim after the passenger allegedly annoyed him on a flight departing from San Francisco.

Passenger Demands Compensation

Melvin Townsend, the alleged victim, is seeking £350,000 in damages. He incurred significant medical costs after being attacked by Tyson when he asked for a photo. Townsend's lawyer states that his client suffered head and neck pain, loss of consciousness, concussion, and a contusion on the head. Additionally, he claims Townsend experienced various symptoms such as nausea, headaches, depression, memory issues, and compromised vision.

Legal Action Threatened

Townsend's legal representatives have sent a letter to Tyson's team outlining their demands. If an agreement cannot be reached, they plan to file a lawsuit. The letter refers to video evidence widely available on the internet showing Tyson repeatedly punching Townsend after becoming annoyed during a conversation.

Tyson's Response

Tyson's lawyer, Alex Spiro, has rejected the demand for a settlement, stating that there will be no "shakedown payment." Tyson himself expressed remorse for the incident, admitting he was in the wrong and attributing his behavior to feeling irritated, tired, high, and angry.
