Mike Tyson goes back to jail

The former heavyweight champion has been sentenced to 24 hours behind bars and three years' probation after pleading guilty to drug possession and driving under the influence.

The sentence followed a traffic stop in Scottsdale, Arizona last December.

Authorities say they found bags of cocaine in Tyson's pocket and in his car.

Tyson spent three years in an Indiana prison following a 1992 rape conviction.

And another spell in jail after pleading no-contest to two misdemeanour assault charges in Maryland in 1999.
