The former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has been arrested at Los Angeles International Airport, after he allegedly punched a photographer.

Police said the troubled 43-year-old had been detained on suspicion of battery following an altercation at the airport terminal.

The photographer told police that Tyson, who once styled himself the "baddest man on the planet," struck him once, but is also expected to be charged in the incident.
