Mike Tyson prosecutor goes for the jugular
Just as spiders spin webs and rats abandon a sinking ship, prosecutors prosecute especially when it comes to former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson, who was arrested last week and charged with cocaine possession and DUI.
Tyson was busted after leaving a nightclub in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was allegedly driving erratically he ran a stop sign and almost struck a cop car when he was pulled over by the police, who said they saw him trying to wipe some lines off his dash.
A search of Tyson’s car revealed three bags of blow.
Maricopa County prosecutor, Andrew Thomas, said at a recent press conference, “He (Tyson) has run out of second chances, at least in my book. I don’t take any pleasure out of doing this. A week ago, my kids and I were watching Rocky Balboa in the movie theatre, and we saw Mike Tyson make a cameo appearance in the movie. Now here we are and he’s looking at going back to prison.”
At the time of his bust, the arresting officer wrote that Tyson “admitted to using today and stated he is an addict and has a problem.”
By the sound of it, Mike Tyson, boxing’s favorite repeat offender, won’t be receiving any special treatment from the State of Arizona.
