The Hangover star was travelling from Barcelona in Spain to Los Angeles with his wife Lakiha Spicer when they interchanged at the U.K's Heathrow airport.
Tyson was left fuming when an airport employee tried to photograph the couple as they stood in an elevator and the boxer allegedly lunged at the worker, reports Britain's The Sun.
According to the publication, Tyson's minders removed the unnamed man from the carriage to avoid the argument escalating.
A source says, "The man was a bit dim. Tyson went berserk."
