Boxing great Mike Tyson has revealed he was let off by police after being stooped while driving as “high as a mother******”.
Iron Mike, 53, who has announced plans to get back in the ring after a 14-year hiatus, made the stunning admission on the latest edition of his Hotboxin podcast.
The Baddest Man on the Planet runs his own cannabis farm and is said to earn AU$930,000 a year from the business.
Tyson, who announced plans to return to boxing last month, revealed he was under the influence of weed and alcohol when he was pulled over by cops in California.
“I remember one day I got pulled over, I’m drunk, I’m high,” he said.
“So they pulled me over and they said, ‘Pull up on the kerb’.
“So I pull up, I go on the kerb … boom boom! Ohh s***!
“The cop turns and looks and he goes, ‘Oh s*** Mike Tyson! F****** hell!’
“So I said, ‘Sir, can you help me get to this address?’ Then he took me to the f****** address where the drug spot was and I said, ‘Thank you sir’ and I was free!
“Oh s***! I’m high as a motherf*****.”
Tyson started running his dope farm in 2016. He smokes $83,000 of weed a month – enough to kill a herd of elephants.
He has also been jailed twice, including for rape in 1992.
It has been suggested that Tyson’s return could be a third fight against old foe Evander Holyfield, despite calls for him to quit. The 57-year-old is also in training ahead of his own comeback.
Tyson is widely claimed to be one of the greatest fighters of all time.
The boxer, from New York, was just 20 when he lifted the world heavyweight title and went on to dominate boxing.
