Tyson in court over drug charges 1/15/2007
Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has been charged with drug possession and driving under the influence of drugs by an Arizona grand jury.
The 40-year-old was arrested on 29 December in Scottsdale, 10 miles (16km) east of Phoenix, Arizona.

He was stopped in the early hours of the morning. Police say they found cocaine on him and in his car.

If convicted of the offences, Mr Tyson could face a jail sentence of more than seven years.

Court documents

Court documents said the former heavyweight boxing champion was taken into police custody after his car nearly collided with a sheriff''s vehicle, court documents said.

According to the documents, the arresting officer said Mr Tyson admitted to having used cocaine that day and that he was addicted to the illegal drug.

Mr Tyson''s lawyer was not available for comment.

In 1992, he was convicted of rape, eventually serving half of a six-year jail term.

In 1999 he was sentenced to a year in prison after pleading no contest to two misdemeanour assault charges in Maryland. He served just over three months.

Mike Tyson became the youngest champion in heavyweight history when he took the title aged 20 in 1986. He retired last year, with a 50-6 record that included 44 knockouts.
