Ex-champ Tyson comes to aid of motorcyclist
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Retired boxer Mike Tyson came to the rescue of an injured motorcyclist after a crash on a Las Vegas interstate last week.
Attorney Stephen Stubbs said his client, 29-year-old Ryan Chesley, was on Interstate 15 in Las Vegas Tuesday night when a taxi cut him off and he went down.
Stubbs said Chesley was lying on the ground when he looked up and saw Tyson, who was yelling at people not to touch Chesley.
Stubbs said Chesley snapped a cellphone picture of Tyson, who vanished from the scene “like some kind of superhero” when paramedics arrived.
Tyson’s assistant, Steve Lott, says Tyson received a handwritten thank-you note and a fruit basket from Chesley on Friday.
