TMZ Sports first reported the incident, which was on a JetBlue flight leaving from San Fransisco International Airport. Tyson was attending a cannabis festival at Golden Gate Park before the incident.
The man was reported to be "extremely intoxicated" and tried taking a selfie with Tyson. He then continued to talk to Tyson, with the idea that he was “provoking” him enough for Tyson to lean over the seat and land shots to his face. The man's friend filmed during the event.
