Mike Tyson is back in the headlines, this time for impatiently ramming his car into the visitor’s gate of a private community in Las Vegas on Thanksgiving morning.
According to local ABC news affiliate KTNV, the retired boxer pulled his late-model black Escalade up to the southern part of Valley at Monarch Estates at around 7:45 a.m. Thursday.
“He went to the visitor’s gate, but instead of driving through the gate when it opened, he veered off and hit the closed resident’s gate,” said Action News reporter Rikki Cheese. “Tyson reportedly backed up and ripped the gate down. Metro was called, and Tyson got a ticket.”
Las Vegas Police were called to investigate and gave him a breathalyzer test, which he passed. They then dismissed the entire incident as an accident and Tyson escaped with a fine before being allowed inside of the gated community to visit his friend.
