Mike Tyson turns himself in, facing time for DUI

Mike Tyson is only staying overnight…24 hours for a DUI conviction. He got the Paris Hilton package, huh? Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who runs the jail, said Tyson still must wear the jail-issue pink underwear and black-and-white striped jumpsuit.  Besides the day in jail, Tyson was sentenced to three years’ probation. He also must perform 360 hours of community service and undergo drug testing.

The 41-year-old boxer pleaded guilty Sept. 24 to one count of felony cocaine possession and one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence. The charges stem from his arrest last year after leaving a Scottsdale club when he was stopped for driving erratically. Police said they saw Tyson brush a white powder off his dashboard, and they found baggies of cocaine in Tyson’s pockets and in his car.

Remember Kids, drugs are bad. At least be a smart addict. Who the hell is going to do lines off their dashboard? Do that at home, or at least before you leave the club.

Also, why the hell did they give him a one day sentence. He may need to stay in jail and get sober…2weeks…a month could have done some good. At least send him to a rehab program like most stars have been doing. I guess you have to be a young white female celebrity for that.
