Mike Tyson Arrested for Cocaine Possession

(Scottdale, Arizona) - Mike Tyson has been released without bond from an Arizona jail after being charged with drug possession.

The former heavyweight champion was arrested early Friday morning after he nearly hit a sheriff's vehicle while leaving a Scottsdale nightclub. Police Sergeant Larry Hall says Tyson "showed signs of impairment" and officers found cocaine in is back pocket and in his car.

According to a police probable cause statement filed in Maricopa County Superior Court, Tyson "admitted to using today and stated he is an addict and has a problem."

No alcohol was found in Tyson's system, and a DUI drugs charge has not been filed pending toxicology tests.

Tyson did not enter a plea and did not have a lawyer present.

He's scheduled for a preliminary hearing on January 16th.
