Mike Tyson Case in Prosecutor's Hands

11/17/2009 5:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Tyson Case in Prosecutor's HandsMike Tyson's explosive run-in with a paparazzo at LAX last week is now in the hands of L.A. prosecutors ... sources tell TMZ.

We've learned the LAPD sent the case to the Los Angeles City Attorney this morning. We're told the City Attorney has conducted a preliminary investigation but has not decided whether to charge Tyson and/or the papper, Tony Echevarria, with criminal battery.

We're told the City Attorney wants to see the video the photog shot when the fight broke out.

Both Tyson and Echevarria were arrested. Tyson says the photog made contact with the stroller carrying his baby and he struck the dude in self defense.

Who in their RIGHT MIND would want to TRY to intimidate Mike Tyson?! Send the PAPPO to jail for a few days with a Mike lover and see what happens. Dumb A%#!

This angry world! The Papps are angry if hiding in bushes is not enough for the "pic that sells" ,they chase in auto ,on foot, moped or what ever to get the photo. They are many times very dangerous antics used by the pappers. It seems most of the angry celebs like to punch these angry morons out. Like animals on a wheel. They both need to pay the citizens of the town they made their mess,not waste court time for tax payers.

Geez Mike. It just makes me so angry that you and other Blacks act like White people. You guys aught to start taking a hard look in the mirror and realize that you ARE NOT WHITE and that you can't do what they do and get away with it. Sometimes you just have to suck it up. Now you've put yourself back in their hands and they are going to have a ball with you. You knew that guy wasn't going to hurt your kid. Why you let them get ahold of you again is something I'll never understand. JUST SO FRIGGING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!

Hit em again Mike. Time for these Paps to be a lil more respectful of peoples personal space. Being at the airport (celebrity or not) dosent automatically give someone the right to be invading your personal space.

Something these Paps need to learn. Mike "Right Hook" Tyson is prob the best teacher. So...Hit em again. Give em one for me.
