Turns out Shepard got quite the tongue-lashing from former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson. Apparently Iron Mike once told him, “If you don’t take your hand off my shoulder, I’m gonna break your f***ing head open.”
Shepard went on to explain what drew such ire from the human punching machine, saying, “I was at the NBA All-Star Game, and I had met him the week before and he really liked me, and I was way too familiar with him and grabbing him and stuff, and then he didn’t remember me and he understandably told me to get my hand off of him and then I thought he was joking and then he escalated it and then I took my hand off his shoulder.”
Luckily Shepard never got his head broken open and went on to live a full life and create the film CHIPS.
