Brett Kavanaugh was questioned by police after a bar fight while he was an undergraduate at Yale and reportedly threw ice on another patron, a new report claims.
The Supreme Court nominee’s drinking has come under scrutiny after he told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that he did not drink to excess. Responding to claims that he had sexually assaulted women, Kavanaugh denied the claims and said that he was moderate in his drinking. A new report from the New York Times may cast doubt on that claim.
The newspaper found a police record from 1985 in which Kavanaugh, then a junior at Yale University, was questioned by the New Haven Police Department. The report noted that Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice on a 21-year-old man “for some unknown reason.”
In 2014, 19-year-old Jessica Chambers was found dead by the side of the road, her body scorched after it had been doused with fuel and set on fire. The prime suspect in her murder, Quinton Tellis, went on trial last year for her murder, but it ended in a mistrial. Now, People reports that the second trial for the murder of the Mississippi teen has also ended in a mistrial.
State officials have said they are unsure if they will attempt to prosecute Tellis again. Currently, he is being sent to Louisiana to await trial for the murder of Meing-Chen Hsiao. Though Tellis pleaded not guilty in the stabbing death of 34-year-old Hsiao, he did admit to using her debit card.
The first mistrial in the murder of Chambers occurred last October. At the time, the jurors were so unsure of a verdict that Judge Gerald Chatham ordered them to deliberate three times before acknowledging that they were “hopelessly deadlocked.”
Former NBA player Chris Dudley, a college friend of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh who defended Kavanaugh in a statement issued by the White House Monday, was involved in a bar fight alongside Kavanaugh when the two were students at Yale University in 1985 — and in that fight Dudley threw a glass at another man, hitting the man in the ear and sending him to the hospital with “bleeding from the right ear,” according to a police report cited Monday by The New York Times.
According to the police report, Dudley — who is now 53-years-old and a financial adviser in San Diego, California, according to The Oregonian newspaper — denied throwing the glass at the man, then-21-year-old Dom Cozzolino, according to the police report.
While many use medicinal marijuana to help manage symptoms from a variety of illnesses and conditions, one must double-check before using it to cure diseases as it could cost one their job, as well as reputation.
This is exactly what happened to a Vietnam War veteran, Henry Cobbs, who was forced out of his job for using a cannabis derivative to treat his cancer, per Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
The 77-year-old veteran retired in 1983 as an Air Force captain and holds two master’s degrees and a PhD. After retiring from his military services, he joined the world of academia and had been serving as the dean of academics at the Air Force Special Operations School (AFSOS), at Hurlburt Field near Fort Walton Beach, since 2009.
Two years ago, he was diagnosed with a rare form of prostate cancer and sought different treatments before resorting to the use of cannabidiol (CBD oil), which was prescribed to him by an Alabama-based physician in 2017.
On Friday, 42-year-old Rasseon Adams, a deaf man living in Paterson, New Jersey, was arrested by police. Unfortunately, in the process, he was also maced and punched by officers while being wrestled to the ground and cuffed, as can be seen in a video taken by a witness at the scene. That video has since gone viral, sparking outrage and a swift reaction.
As per ABC 7 New York, prosecutors in the state of New Jersey have launched an investigation into the incident while the public questions the level of force used against Adams.
“What I saw was very disturbing,” attorney Aymen Aboushi said. “I saw unprofessional conduct from an officer that was unprepared to deal with someone who has an obvious handicap.”
Paterson Police Director Jerry Speziale has quickly responded to the call for action, issuing a statement regarding the officers in question.
“This matter has been sent to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office for review. The officers are on full duty.”
A golf fan who was blinded in her right eye after being hit by a golf ball at the Ryder Cup is planning to launch a lawsuit against the tournament organizers.
The Daily Mail reports that 49-year-old Corine Remande traveled to France from Egypt to watch the Ryder Cup with her husband Raphael and the golf-mad pair were looking forward to watching some exciting golf.
Husband and wife had taken their places at the Le Golf National club in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines just outside Paris and were keenly anticipating the showdown between Europe and the United States when disaster struck.
They were avidly watching American golfer Brooks Koepka make his tee shot when the ball veered left, which rocketed into the gathered spectators on the sixth hole and went hurtling directly into Remande’s right eye, causing it to explode.
Medics rushed to Remande’s aid before she was transferred to a specialist eye hospital in Paris.
An Ohio mother is in trouble for letting her 10-year-old son get a tattoo by a 16-year-old tattoo artist, Yahoo News is reporting.
Nikki Dickinson, 34, has been arrested and is facing a variety of criminal charges for the September 24 incident in which a teenage tattoo artist was caught on video allegedly applying the ink to the preadolescent. The incident might never have come to the attention of the police but for the fact that video of the kid allegedly getting the tat was posted on social media. Once that happened, the Bellefontaine Police Department started getting flooded with outraged phone calls.
The video was recorded on September 24.
You can watch the video below, but be warned: it contains content that may be disturbing to some viewers.
Bill Cosby has been in prison for about a week or so by now, and sources say he’s getting by as best he can, with daily phone calls to his wife and a guide to help him around, TMZ is reporting.
The 81-year-old isn’t in General Population yet – and once he’s there, things may change drastically, probably for the worse. For now, he’s in a sort of orientation period, which means he’s spending much of his time chatting it up with the guards and other prison employees. Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, says that Cosby has told him that the guards are very respectful and polite to him.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will be investigating the Ohio police unit that, among other things, arrested Donald Trump accuser Stormy Daniels at a Columbus strip club earlier this year.
As Huffington Post reports, Columbus’ Vice Squad, which has since been suspended by Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs, has been the subject of a variety of complaints, from an arrest that may have been politically motivated to outright murder (or at the very least, excessive force, depending on whom you ask). And Jacobs would like the FBI to take a look.
On August 23, for example, Vice Squad detective Andrew Mitchell was involved in an excessive-force incident involving a prostitute. As WCMH-TV (Columbus) reports, Donna Castleberry, an alleged prostitute, had been arrested by Mitchell and placed in the back of his unmarked squad car. Castleberry somehow produced a knife and stabbed Mitchell in the hand; Mitchell shot Castleberry dead. He has since been assigned to desk duty, pending an investigation.
In her allegations against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, 55-year-old web designer Julie Swetnick claimed that Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge were involved in spiking drinks at parties with Quaaludes — a powerful sedative drug — and high-potency alcohol, according to a sworn affidavit posted on the Twitter account of her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
High school yearbook entries, according to the reporter who broke the story of the first sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh in The Intercept, may actually corroborate Swetnick’s allegations of Quaalude and high-proof alcohol use amongst Kavanugh’s circle of friends. Several of the entries contain references to “Killer Qs” and “151.”
“‘Killer Qs and 151’ is quite plausibly a reference to quaaludes and grain alcohol, which Julie Swetnick said were used to drug high school girls,” wrote reporter Ryan Grim on his Twitter account.
A video captured on surveillance camera showing two teenagers allegedly attacking four people for no apparent reason, including a child, has gone viral.
As The Miami Herald reports, a Circle K convenience store in Silver Springs, Florida (about halfway between Orlando and Gainesville) was the scene of an ugly brawl last Friday. Police say that Brandon Clanton and Julia Napiontek, both 18, started brawling with four people, whom they did not know, for no apparent reason.
One of the alleged victims was an 11-year-old girl. Authorities say that Napiontek grabbed the young lady, pulled her from the vehicle she was inside of, threw her to the ground, and battered her.
According to WESH-TV (Orlando), one victim, an adult male, and the girl’s mother had gone into the store to buy a pack of cigarettes. The male says that two men “jumped” him without provocation. When the man was able to make it outside, Napiontek allegedly joined in.
Teenagers were injured and a 12-year-old boy was killed after being hit by a drunk driver on October 1, reported People. Andrew McMorris, a 7th grade boy scout who attended Albert G. Prodell Middle School, was walking with his troop on a road in Manorville, New York, when he and four other troop members were struck by a Mercedes Benz SUV. According to the Suffolk County Police Department, McMorris and his troop were going to go on a hike. “I think they were practicing for a hiking trip. That’s what I was told,” Manorville resident Paul Gutowski told CBS News.“It was the middle of the day. I don’t know how that could’ve happened.”
After attending a meeting in Washington D.C. last week with Republican lawmakers, Sundar Pichai — the CEO of Google — will be returning to the nation’s capital for a meeting of social media companies at the White House. President Donald Trump and his administration are also hoping that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be present at the meeting.
Pichai met with several prominent Republicans, including White House Economic advisor Larry Kudlow, over a perceived bias found on social media networks — a meeting which Kudlow describes as successful, according to reports from Engadget.
Social media networks have been a common target for Trump and his associates in recent months, with the services frequently accused of bias. The two specific targets of Trump’s venom have been Google and Twitter, two companies that Trump accuses of having a negative bias against conservatives.
Back in August, Trump unleashed an early-morning tweet lambasting Google on Twitter.
Two people in Ted Cruz’s Houston campaign office were sent to the hospital after being exposed to a piece of mail containing a powdery white substance on Tuesday — an incident that the FBI is now investigating.
The incident happened at the Phoenix Tower office building on Southwest Freeway in Houston, ABC 13 reported. Officials said that the entire 9th floor of the building was evacuated after the incident, and the elevators were shut down for some time. Police and Hazmat teams were sent to the building, and the fire department tested for hazardous materials. All tests came up negative for toxic substances.
Authorities did not reveal the identities of the two people who were sent to the hospital, but did say that neither worked for Ted Cruz’s campaign. Their condition was not immediately known.
The Republican Senator is up for re-election, and is now locked in a tighter-than-expected race with Democrat Beto O’Rourke.
Tempers flared on ABC’s The View Tuesday during a conversation discussing recent comments made by the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
Within those comments, Trump Jr. insisted that he worried more for his sons in the era of #MeToo rather than his daughters, believing that the movement would be more likely to bring about false claims of sexual assault in the future. He also described Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as “so obviously political,” suggesting that he didn’t believe her claims, per previous reporting from Inquisitr.
The conservative member of the View Abby Huntsman defended Trump Jr.’s assertions.
Four members of the Rise Above Movement out of California have been arrested by local authorities for their involvement in the deadly Charlottesville rally of 2017, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The four men — Benjamin Drake Daley, Michael Paul Miselis, Thomas Walter Gillen and Cole Evan White — were arrested for inciting a riot against counter protesters last year. In the affidavit that charged the men, it says that they were “among the most violent individuals present in Charlottesville” arguing that there is video and photographic evidence of the four men attacking counter-protesters.
The men are part of the anti-Semitic Rise Above movement, which stages meetings in public parks to specifically train in fighting techniques ahead of these sorts of events.
Charges against the four men argue that they have taken part in violent actions at other political rallies — mostly in the Californian cities of Huntington Beach and Berkeley — but also other cities around the state.
Hellmuth Kolb, an 81-year-old man from Port Orange, Florida, has been arrested after he allegedly offered a woman $200,000 to buy her 8-year-old daughter outside a Walmart in the town, reportsNewsweek.
Tracy Nigh, the mother who was offered the money, reported the incident immediately to Walmart security as she quickly left the store. That allowed Walmart to alert police who were able to apprehend Kolb, who was sent to Volusia County Jail. Kolb was charged with battery and false imprisonment of a minor under the age of 13.
Police reported that Nigh was sitting on a bench inside the store when Kolb approached her initially asking if she was married before he started asking about her daughter. Kolb quickly started asking if she would accept money in exchange for her daughter, starting at $100,000 before rising to $200,000. When Nigh tried to excuse herself, pulling her daughter away from him, Kolb allegedly grabbed the girl’s wrist and kissed it.
Two packages laced with a suspicious substance have been found at a Pentagon mail screening facility on Monday, according to Military Times.
Initial test results suggest that the packages, one addressed to U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and the other to Navy’s top officer Admiral John Richardson, contain ricin.
Ricin is a poison naturally found in castor beans. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), accidental exposure to ricin is highly unlikely except through ingestion of castor beans.
Castor beans that are swallowed whole and without damage to the seed coat may pass harmlessly through the system, but if the coat is broken or chewed, the poison can enter the body.
The CDC said that it actually entails a deliberate act to make ricin a poison that can injure and possibly kill people.
Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee claimed in sworn testimony that Christine Blasey Ford, the Palo Alto University research psychologist accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both in high school, was “not someone I knew.” But as Inquisitr has reported, in fact Blasey Ford dated a close high school friend of Kavanaugh’s — a friend who according to a 1982 calendar kept by Kavanaugh attended a drinking party on July 1 of that year. It was also attended by at least two other Georgetown Prep students named by Blasey Ford as present at the party where she says Kavanaugh attacked her.
Holton-Arms students were familiar to Kavanaugh, who told the Senate Judiciary Committee that “I was friends with a couple” of the Holton-Arms girls, according to a Senate Democrats document.
Three letters that are suspected of containing the highly lethal poison ricin were sent to top-level government officials on Monday, including the president of the United States.
Defense Secretary James Mattis and Admiral John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations, were addressed on the two envelopes suspected of containing ricin that were sent to the Pentagon this week. The letters were stopped at the Pentagon Central Processing Center, ABC News reports.
But the same day, the Secret Service stopped an envelope addressed to Donald Trump. It’s not known when or where the letter was intercepted, but it never made it into the White House and the president was never in danger of exposure.
All mail at the Pentagon is now under quarantine, according to a statement from the Department of Defense. The Central Processing Center, where the letters were received, is not attached to the main Pentagon building and the envelopes did not reach their intended targets.
