Tyson Arrested on DUI and Cocaine Possession Charges

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, 40, was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine while leaving Sugar Daddy’s nightclub, 3102 N. Scottsdale Rd. [MAP/SAT] early Friday.

An arresting officer from the Buckeye Police Department participating in a task force assignment in Scottsdale said he saw Tyson trying to wipe a white powder off the console of his BMW. Tyson was pulled over about 1:45 a.m. Friday after he almost collided with a police car.

Tyson appeared in Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix later Friday and was ordered released without bond on a felony drug possession charge. No alcohol was detected in his system, and a DUI-drugs charge was not filed pending toxicology tests.
