Mike Tyson's Full Day In Jail

We're not sure why, but we feel compelled to write about Mike Tyson today. You could pretty much write about Mike Tyson every day, or never write about him at all, and you'd still satisfy all sides.

No, no, we're not here to talk about buying Tyson's poop; Tyson was sentenced today to 24 hours in jail after an arrest in September. In case you forgot the details:

Police pulled Tyson over after the boxer had spent the evening at Scottsdale's Pussycat Lounge. An officer said he saw Tyson wiping a white substance off the dashboard of his black BMW, and that his speech was slurred. Authorities said they found bags of cocaine in Tyson's pocket and in his car.


There's something about spending 24 hours in jail that's almost charming; it seems like something Sheriff Andy Taylor would sentence somebody to. "Oh, Mike ... there you go again, with the white substance on the dashboard. Here, have some pie."
