Solitary For Boxer Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was ordered to spend 20 additional days in solitary confinement for an outburst last Friday in which he threw a TV set in a jailhouse recreation room.

Prison officials accused him of disorderly conduct, destroying property and assaulting a correctional officer, who was allegedly struck with shards of plastic from the shattered television. On Wednesday, a two-member disciplinary panel ruled that Tyson must remain isolated from other prisoners until March 6.

Tyson is serving a one-year sentence for assaulting two men following a minor traffic accident in August. He pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced Feb. 5 to a cell among the jail's regular population of inmates. He has been in solitary confinement since the incident last Friday.

Tyson also is on probation in Indiana for raping a beauty pageant contestant in 1991. Indiana officials are considering whether to revoke his probation based on his legal problems in Maryland.
