Mike Tyson, the boxing legend, was cleared of charges after hitting a man on a plane.

Mike Tyson will not face criminal charges after being seen on camera hitting a fellow passenger on a plane at San Francisco International Airport earlier this month.

The case has been closed, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. According to District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, both the victim and Tyson requested that no charges be made.

Tyson can be seen repeatedly pounding the unidentified man in the head on video taken aboard a Jet Blue flight destined for Florida.

The same man can also be seen standing up behind Tyson’s seat, seemingly attempting to catch the 55-year-attention, old’s while the ex-fighter sits quietly but periodically turns around.

According to Tyson’s representatives, the boxer was on a flight with “an angry passenger who harassed him and tossed a water bottle at him while he was in his seat.”

The boxer’s attorneys, David Z. Chesnoff, Richard A. Schonfeld, and Martin A. Sabelli, praised the authorities’ efforts and flexibility in keeping things simple.

“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.
