On Friday (22 April), representatives for Tyson issued a statement to The Associated Press regarding the clip and his outburst.
"Unfortunately, Mr. Tyson had an incident on a flight with an aggressive passenger who began harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat," they told the outlet.
San Francisco police also issued a statement about the situation and said that the officers arrived on the scene and "detained two subjects" believed to be a part of the altercation.
"One subject was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries. That subject provided minimal details of the incident and refused to cooperate further with the police investigation," they continued.
Tyson and the other party were both released pending further investigation.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office will be investigating the video as well and noted that they are not releasing any details about it "because it is an active investigation."
Indy100 reached out to JetBlue airlines, who haven't commented on the matter as of yet.
