TYSON CAMP QUIETLY FIGHTING OFF ALLEGATIONS
Published April 11, 1996
MIKE TYSON and promoter DON KING remained silent yesterday as Chicago police continued to investigate an allegation of sexual assault by the boxer on a 25-year-old beautician at a Chicago night club last weekend. Chicago police said "no charges have been brought and no arrests have been made" (Jay Searcy, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 4/11). The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES reports two companions of the woman corroborate her story, while a third, accompanied at a press conference yesterday by the general manager of the night club, did not back her claim. A probation officer for Marion County, IN, where Tyson served a previous sentence for sexual assault, said a police report without charges does not constitute a violation of parole, but that Tyson should not have been in a bar (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 4/11).
