Death-wish intruder breaks into Mike Tyson's room while he slept
It may well have been the most foolish act that any intruder could have contemplated but fortunately for the dumb criminal he managed to escape.
Mike Tyson was staying at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
hotel along with members of his family. They were resting after having attended a lavish New Year's Eve concert watching Stevie Wonder. According to TMZ
, the ex-boxer was sound asleep in his bed when he was disturbed by rustling noises and had seen a flashlight. But by the time Iron Mike came to his senses and realised what was going on the intruder had wisely fled.
Security at the hotel was called and the incident is currently under investigation. There were no reports of any items stolen from Tyson's room. A hotel representative said, "We have received a report of an incident that is currently under investigation. As always, guest safety is of the utmost importance."
Police in Las Vegas have not made any public comment on the incident
. Investigations are still under way. The incident has clearly not unsettled the former boxing legend as there is no mention on his official website
