Mike Tyson accused of assaulting Brazilian cameraman

Brazilian police questioned Mike Tyson on Thursday after a TV cameraman accused the boxer of assaulting him in a nightclub.

The former heavyweight champion was scheduled to appear in court on Friday, where he could face charges of assault and destruction of property, police spokeswoman Kelly Pinheiro said.

Carlos Eduardo da Silva, 34, a cameraman with Brazilian television network SBT, told police he was trying to film Tyson at a Sao Paulo nightclub early Thursday morning when Tyson pushed him and threw his camera on the ground.

Tyson then took the videotape from the camera and put the film in his own pocket, Silva told police.

Tyson was interviewed at a police station about 4 a.m. local time and released four hours later. He admitted damaging the camera but denied pushing the cameraman, the AP reports.
