Tyson

Faces Judge

12/29/2006 1:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Tyson mugshotTMZ is all over this Mike Tyson bust in Scottsdale, Arizona. Tyson appeared before a judge just a few minutes ago in connection with his DUI arrest early this morning. Tyson was advised he will be charged with one count of narcotic drug possession, a felony.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that after he was stopped, the former fighter admitted to cops that he had been using illegal drugs over the last few days. Cops claim they found cocaine in his car and on his person.

Tyson was released today without bail. He must check in with a pre-trial service officer today. Under the terms of the release, he will be forced to take drug and alcohol tests.

Tyson was ordered not to possess any weapons or drink alcohol. He cannot take drugs without a prescription. The judge also ordered Tyson not to leave Arizona.

Cops say they stopped Iron Mike after he ran a stop sign and almost crashed into a sheriff's vehicle around 1:45 AM. The arresting officer was part of a special holiday DUI task force.

This isn't Tyson's first brush in the law in Arizona. In 2004, the embattled boxer was arrested and charged with suspicion of criminal damage after cops say he left a nightclub and jumped on the hood of a stranger's car, causing about $1400 in damage.

MikeTyson is a Black Man/Child in America, and he will go to Jail/Wharehoused. He will not get treatment in prison for this drug "CRIME" sickness an anti social behavior. It's sad to see a fellow human suffer by his own demonds

If you read the report carefully...it appears he's snorting coke off his console while driving. That takes a lot of coordination. Good thing he wasn't drinking. I tell you from experience, it's not easy. Mike should've pulled over to do a line.

This has been an interesting read. Give a lawmaker a drug test thats a damn good idea, and have periodic testing as long as they hold office. We could call it the Tyson Bill, I am on the phone with my errr Congressman now to see if they will pass such a law...if that passed the law makers might be interested in sending their kids to Iraq....Rosie and Trump, will get married before you see that happening. For Mikey the laws not a-changing, its best he do damage control, plead as quickly as possible and get his time over with, he'll still have time to make it out before the "snow" is here for Christmas 2007.
