Tyson Fined

Compiled From Wire Services

Mike Tyson, who punctured a lung and broke a rib when he took a spill on his motorcycle, was issued a $77 ticket for not having a license to operate the cycle.

Police said the Nevada driver’s license Tyson was carrying during his spill Wednesday night was not valid for motorcycles.

Meanwhile, doctors say the 31-year-old former heavyweight champion was expected to recover fully within six weeks but will be spending a day or two in the hospital.
