Former Boxing Great Mike Tyson BARRED From Entering Chile Because of His Criminal Record

Former boxing great Mike Tyson was barred from entering Chile on Thursday because of his criminal record, airport police said. The American boxer had travelled to Chile to take part in an awards ceremony for action films taking place in Santiago, the country's capital.

Immigration police at Santiago international airport tweeted a photo of the 51-year-old former heavyweight champion being escorted by officers 're-embarking' him. 

It said he was being deported for 'not complying with immigration law.' The police force explained it had the power to 'prohibit the entry into the country of any foreigner who has negative records and/or convictions in their country of origin.' His criminal record also includes convictions for assault and cocaine possession.

Sadly people here have no idea of who Tyson is. Especially now that he has become a more celebrated person. I’m very sure many are far worse than him here. The charges against him posted above are what many celebrities have against them but were not charged because of cutting corners. How many times were people like Bieber charged for attacking people who needed autograph or attack paparazzi? They include his grief against prison warded as if it was a big crime that he committed. Why was he given a big hosting in Germany some years ago where he spoke about his life and book? You guys should watch it on YouTube instead of ranting here.
