Tyson was indicted on Friday on felony drug possession and paraphernalia possession counts and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of drugs. If convicted of all four charges, he could be sentenced to up to 7 1/2 years in prison, Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said.

“Tyson endangered the public and himself and must be held accountable for his actions,” Thomas said. “It’s my hope that a conviction and prison time will help him to break his addictions and learn to comply with the law.”
