And the 56-year-old revealed he was high on drugs after smoking marijuana all day at a San Francisco festival celebrating the drug’s legalization.

He explained: ‘First of all, I came from this place called Hippy Hill, where 60,000 people were smoking cannabis.

“So by the time I’m on the plane, I’m hungry, high, and tired. And this man continues to work against me.

‘And then I came to my senses and kicked him a fucking**. I’m just kidding. I wish I had kicked him.

‘My bodyguard jumped on top of him and I hit my bodyguard, I’m sorry’ [for].’

San Mateo County District Attorney confirmed later that the man would not press charges against Tyson.
