Tyson, who was convicted of rape in 1992 and has become known
for erratic behavior, appeared on the scene after Ryan Chesley
crashed and stayed with the rider until ambulances arrived,
newspapers reported citing Chesley's lawyer.
Chesley later sent the boxer a fruit basket and a note reading:
"It has to be the most reassuring thing in the world to have
Mike Tyson telling people not to touch me," according to a copy
printed by The New York Daily News.
"Tyson saw the whole thing ... Mike kept him calm until
paramedics arrived," Tyson's spokeswoman Joann Mignano told
Chesley suffered broken bones and other injuries in the crash
last Tuesday but was later released from hospital, media
