Mike Tyson Pulls a Lindsay Lohan

Life is good for Mike Tyson and Lindsay Lohan, despite their recent trouble with the law. Brad Paisley once sang in his country hit song "Celebrity" (released in 2003), that celebs can easily say, "I'll get community service, no matter which law I break." Now it appears that unless you are Paris Hilton, Paisley has it pegged. Lindsay Lohan may have been arrested twice over the summer but her punishment was a slap on the wrist, and a photo op at jail and community service.Now even iron Mike is getting the same treatment. Mike Tyson was sentenced to 24-hours in the clink and 3-years probation for drug possession and driving under the influence. He faced up to 4-years maximum in jail for the charges.

Mike was pulled over in Arizona last December. He was leaving a strip club. Cops found a couple of bags of cocaine on him and also witnessed Mike cleaning coke from his dashboard. Give Tyson this - he was honest. Tyson told officers later that he used cocaine "whenever I can get my hands on it," and that he preferred to smoke it in Marlboro cigarettes with the tobacco pulled out, according to court documents. He also told police that he used marijuana that day and was taking the antidepressant Zoloft, the documents state.He was busted in Maricopa County (think Phoenix Arizona). He will likely be spending time in the world famous Tent city for his brief stay. He also gets three years probation and though it is not stated surely he will also get community service.
