(Newser) – Boxer Mike Tyson is in police custody tonight after a violent incident with paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport that, according to a TMZ source, left “blood on the ground.” A rep for Tyson, 43, said he was defending his wife and 10-month-old child from an overly aggressive photographer; a police spokesman tells the AP the photographer fell and hit his head—and that both he and Tyson want to press charges.
