Tyson Fury arrested, strip-searched and questioned!

Iris heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. 
British heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury has revealed an interesting story about him getting stopped by cops and arrested in Holland.

The 23-year old, 6"9 giant was said to have almost exactly matched the description of an eye witness. Policed stopped him and members of his team because they believed that they were involved in a robbery and murder. He claims that him and his team were hand-cuffed, strip-searched and held for hours until the police realised they had made a mistake and realised who he was.

"It was the scariest moment of my life," Fury to the Daily Star. "They were pointing guns at us and shouting: 'GET DOWN! GET DOWN!"

"There had been a robbery in which someone had been murdered and some guys in a bar had given the police a description of the robbers and it was similar to us."

Although Fury was very shocked and annoyed about the situation, he did still manage to make a little joke about it: "The ironical thing is I came here to get away from distractions at home. What a choice!"

Fury was in Holland for a training camp in preparation for his upcoming fight with Vinny Maddalone on July 7th.
