You made it to Wednesday! Catch up on everything you need to know to get through the middle of the week. 


1. Sgt. Spell

Earlier this month police released dashcam video of now-retired Hartford Sgt. Sean Spell kicking a handcuffed suspect during a June arrest. On Tuesday, a police report revealed Spell's side of the story. He said he kicked the suspect because he told him to stop spitting blood, and the suspect did not. He also "detected a strong, distinct odor of PCP"

2. #ConFLiCT

UConn football coach Bob Diaco has finally commented on the demise of the #ConFLiCT - the rivalry he created with UCF last summer. The Knights, who beat UConn Saturday but left the trophy on the sideline, didn't seem to care too much. On Tuesday, Diaco said: "I'm sorry to everyone. I had an idea. What's your idea?"

3. Gilmore Girls

With a month until the much-anticipated "Gilmore Girls" Netflix revival, fans got the full-length trailer they've been waiting for Tuesday. The 2-and-a-half minute trailer features everyone from Lorelai and Rory to Luke and Lane (and pretty much everyone else).
