Washington, Oct 19 (ANI): Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson has been sued for 25 million dollars by a photographer, who claims the boxer beat him down last November.

Tyson was arrested after a run-in with a photog at LAX, reports TMZ.com.

He was initially booked for misdemeanor battery, but the L.A. City Attorney officially rejected the case, citing “insufficient evidence.”

According to the civil lawsuit, the photographer — Antonio Echavarria — claims Tyson attacked him, hit him with a closed left fist, and broke his camera.

Echavarria also claims he suffered a concussion and strain to his spinal cord.

He’s asking for 25 million dollar in damages. (ANI)
