Mike Tyson and crazy stories go hand-in-hand - we all know that.

The former world champion has seen (and done) some stuff in his lifetime that us Average Joes wouldn't dare to do.

As a result, the boxing icon turned marijuana farmer has plenty of tales in his locker - but this one might just be his most odd yet.

And it involves a Rolls-Royce, Burger King and a pocket full of condoms.

Let us explain.

Iron Mike once bribed police officers with a brand spanking new sports car after getting into a public argument with his ex-wife at Burger King.

But wait, it gets better.

It turns out the couple were bickering over condoms.

Fearing his arrest for the heated exchange in the American fast food chain car park, Tyson then offered local law enforcement his Rolls-Royce in exchange for his freedom.

Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Tyson revealed his bizarre story.

"I was married at the time to Robin Givens," he said.

"We were in some fast food joint and we were ordering food. She went in my pocket to get some money out to pay and she saw some condoms come out.

"She was mad so she got in the car and crashed it into another car. She hit somebody and hurt their arm.

"The cops came and they were asking what had happened.

"I was afraid that they were going to arrest me or my wife so I said 'well, nothing happened officer'.

"There was a guy there with a broken arm so I just said 'why don't you take the car because you've been through a lot you deserve it'.

"I didn't want to get arrested - I didn't have a license or anything. I didn't want my wife to get in trouble either so i just said 'why don't you just take it, it'll be okay'.

"And the guy said 'hey, don't tell me that' which is when I knew I'd got him. I got him.

"I said 'you deserve this man, take it' and they took it."

The 54-year-old then told UFC commentator and popular podcaster Rogan that the officer involved in the incident later got fired from his job after Tyson called up the police station demanding his car be returned.

The two laughed together.

Rogan perhaps summed up what we were all thinking best.

He said: "Imagine Mike Tyson calling you up saying 'five me my f****** car back'? S***!"
