During his European tour Mike Tyson has been fined $373.71 while he was driving a jet ski in Capri. Officials of Naples’ port authority stopped the boxing former world champion after he had left the 30-metre long yacht, the “Summer Wind”, to go for a ride on a jet ski. Tyson was fined because he was not wearing a helmet and was riding in an area close to the shore line. However, the fine was paided without complaining police marshal Capello Tramparulo said.

The fine was paid by the captain of a boat on which Tyson has been traveling.

“I deeply regret my actions; I wasn’t aware that it was illegal,” Tyson was quoted as saying.
