London, Jan 1 (ANI): Retired American boxer Mike Tyson and a photographer escaped being charged for a scuffle they were involved in at the Los Angeles International airport.

According to Frank Mateljan, who is 43-year-old Tyson's spokesman, the boxer and photographer Tony Echeverria were not charged as prosecutors found insufficient evidence.

The two men had been arrested on November 11 following a scuffle in which each claimed they were struck by the other.

Echeverria said a blow by the former heavyweight champion knocked him to the ground, and he was treated for a cut to the forehead.

Tyson, who was travelling with his family, was mobbed by photographers, and as per his attorney, Shawn Champion Holley, he was protecting his infant daughter after Echeverria collided with her pram.

"The city attorney's decision today is a small victory for those who continue to be harassed, annoyed and even stalked by the paparazzi," the Scotsman quoted her as saying. (ANI)
