Mike Tyson Released From Arizona Jail

Mike Tyson is a free man as of Nov. 21 after serving his 24-hour DUI sentence in an Arizona jail.

The former heavyweight champ passed time behind bars by snacking on sloppy joes and reading the mobster epic "American Gangster."

Jail officials say Tyson was held apart from the other 1,500 inmates in the open-air jail known as Tent City.

Tyson was charged with DUI and cocaine possession last year, after police said they spotted white powder on his dashboard and baggies of cocaine in his car.

The boxer pleaded guilty to both counts in Sept.

He was sentenced to three years probation on the cocaine charge.
