AZ Sheriff Ready & Willing to Punish Mike Tyson

11/15/2009 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Iron Mike Tyson is getting no sympathy from the toughest law man in the county -- because Sheriff Joe Arpaio claims Tyson will feel some serious heat -- literally -- if a judge decides his L.A. arrest violates the terms of his probation from a previous DUI and cocaine conviction in Arizona.

Iron Mike Tyson

Sheriff Joe -- who oversees the famous Tent City jail in Maricopa County, Arizona -- tells TMZ:
"Mike Tyson has served time in the Tents before and if he is violated on the terms of his probation here in Arizona, he better get his jail time done while the weather in Phoenix is cool and not 140 degrees in the summer time."

Tyson spent one day in Tent City back in 2007 -- he was required to wear the jail-issued pink underwear and a black-and-white striped jumpsuit.

I can not stand this DISGUSTING ARROGANT PIG cop. This FAT pig cop looks to me like he should spend some time in 140 degree weather and loose some weight.

OMG.. are you kidding me.. why don't TMZ send a few papas down to the good old sheriff's family and harass they a little then maybe he would understand why Mike did what he did... I do not ever condon fighting but when there is a 10 month old and a wife who are begging harassed as well then I say they get what they asked for.. i'm Glad he did it too.. if more celebs were like him we the public would have less problems and so would they..these people are paid stalkers...and they have the nerve to get mad when the tables have turned...Hope mike get's a free pass for this one!!

Arpaio is starting to piss me off.

I'm all for being tough on crime, but he is getting too much enjoyment from it. He seems like a media whore as well.

Do your effin' job and stay off TV, fat boy.

This disconcerts me. That mischievous, devious, egregious paparazzi should be drawn and quartered. One major limb should be displayed in each major quarter or LA as a reminder to the pap that there is a minimum level of decorum that they are expected to respect and that there are consequences for crossing that proverbial line. Free Mike Tyson. He was only protecting himself and his family from the scourge that is 21st century America.

Does that count as a manifesto or just a tirade?

Really!!!

This man lost a daughter not too long ago. He's still mourning. Don't the citizens of AZ have other matters that require taxpayer dollars than putting Mike in jail!!! Let it go.

When are you going to learn you can't hit (or rape) people and expect to get away with it? You deserve jail time. I don't believe for one second that you were defending your wife and child, they were in a public airport and perfectly safe. If you really felt threatened you should have called for security. You need to get yourself under control because other people AREN'T safe around you. Can you imagine all the kids at the airport, who saw what you did? I hope their parents sue you for emotional distress. Enjoy jail, you belong there.
