Mike Tyson busted

Mike Tyson was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine after police stopped him leaving a Scottsdale nightclub early Friday.

Sgt. Larry Hall said the heavyweight boxer was stopped after his car almost struck a sheriff's vehicle while leaving the club at about 1:45 a.m.

"He showed signs of impairment, and voluntarily submitted to field sobriety tests," said Sgt. Hall.

Tyson was booked, and he is expected to have an initial appearance before a judge later today to determine bail, Hall said.

Call me crazy (it won't be the first or last time) but I feel sorry for this guy in a big way. He was brought onto the fighting scene a green, uneducated, neglected thug and then given millions of dollars, all the while being surrounded by snakes that knew he was not intelligent enough to know he's being taken advantage of. With Don "Snake Oil Salesman" King as a father figure, Mike was doomed from day one. He's clearly suffering from mental illness and reminds me of a big insecure man-child whose life has been manipulated by those that were supposed to take care of him. Very fucked up and very sad.
