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.
