McNeeley nabbed after heist!
Former Mike Tyson opponent Peter McNeeley was arrested Thursday on charges that he was behind the wheel of a getaway car after a 1AM drug store robbery in the Boston suburb of Stoughton. According to WCVB-TV in Boston, the 37-year-old McNeeley is being held without bail pending arraignment in Stoughton District Court. McNeeley was Tyson's opponent in Iron Mike's first bout after resuming his career following a three-year prison stint. Tyson stopped McNeeley in 89 seconds in a fight that generated 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, at that time the highest-grossing PPV boxing event ever.
I guess it's hard to go from tuff-guy boxer to working man. Everyone wants to rob and steal when their career stalls, ends, or fails to take off.
