Mike Tyson, ear biter, convicted rapist, admitted drug addict, Grand Marshall of the rodeo! The rodeo industry demonstrated its curious interpretation of sportsmanship and family values by honoring the infamous Mike Tyson as its Grand Marshall of the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo November 27, 2000 in Phoenix.
In 1992 Tyson was convicted of rape, and sentenced to ten years in prison. Tyson was released three years later, which gave him the opportunity to twice bite Evander Holyfield in the ear during a 1997 boxing match. Tyson succeeded in biting off part of Holyfield's ear. Tyson has since admitted to being hooked on drugs. Mike Tyson--ear biter, rapist, drug addict, rodeo mafioso.
