A Cornell sophomore channeled everyone’s favorite face-tattooed boxer last night, allegedly biting the ear of another student during a fight, The Cornell Sun reports. The ear assault took place outside Louie’s Lunch, a food truck on Cornell’s North Campus, which was closed at the time.
It is unclear whether the
nature of the assault biting and the location were coincidental, or the students just got a little too hungry and impatient. As one Sun commenter so perfectly put it, “When Louie’s is closed, you’ve got to eat something.”
According to the Sun, Mini Mike Tyson was charged with assault in the third degree. If convicted, he could face up to a year in prison.

The subject of this article recently reached out to IvyGate with the following statement:
The case was dismissed, but I realized that I needed to address my drinking problem, and I took a personal leave from Cornell. I stopped drinking and joined AA. I worked as a moving man and truck driver. After a few years, I transferred to another college. I have done very well academically. I have not had a drink in four years and intend to remain sober for the rest of my life.
