Mike Tyson's Handiwork

11/12/2009 11:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This is what it looks like when Mike Tyson punches you in the face.

Paparazzo Tony Echevarria got into it with Tyson yesterday afternoon at LAX. Both men were arrested. Tyson was taken to the police station ... Echevarria went to the hospital.

Tyson's lawyer, David Chesnoff, claims the photog was harassing Tyson, his wife and kid. Chesnoff claims some photogs followed the ex-champ into the bathroom, though he didn't say if Echevarria was one of them.

The photog got 5 stitches.

Pretty ironic -- his t-shirt says, "Live Long."

The paparazzi are modern day stalkers. I am sure this fool wanted to provoke him, so he could sue for damages. Everyone knows Tysons history, so why would you get in the mans face while he was with his family. I would have knocked him out too. These guys are like flies/maggotts, and there should be a law enacted to protect citizens from their harassement.

Who but a pervert would follow someone into the bathroom. Were they going to take a pic of his d*ck. Glad Mike punched him out. Hooray for Mike Tyson!

Justice !    

I am not defending Tyson for doing bodily harm to this guy, but most of the time the PAP is overbearing. PAP just needs to know when to back off before anger becomes an issue and someone gets hurt.

I think its funny. This is what those photographers deserve, and when Mike Tyson tells you to back off, and your only skill is snapping pictures with a camera, you back the f*ck off before he even gets the words out of his mouth.

Awwwwww. I guess we are all suppose to fill sorry for him. I don't. Did his ambulance chasing lawyer take the picture? There is only one way out of a rest room and if the photographer was blocking the exit then he got what he deserved.

I'm sure this guy is going to milk this situation for all it's worth. But the article read they both got arrested so I don't know. What he needs to remember is Mike Tyson doesn't have the millions he once had. Old boy better get himself released from the hospital and so he can get back to work!
