Kavanaugh faced police questioning over 1985 bar brawl

Kavanaugh faced police questioning over 1985 bar brawl

A former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh has accused the US Supreme Court nominee of lying under oath about his drinking during his university years.

USA media has reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has begun interviewing Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's former best friend and a key figure in the misconduct allegations levelled by Ms Ford.

That's the tale told in the September, 1985 New Haven, Conn. police report unearthed Monday by The New York Times and confirmed by other media outlets.

In the New Haven, Connecticut, police department report, a man named Dom Cozzolino said Kavanaugh had thrown ice on him and Kavanaugh's friend Chris Dudley had thrown a glass that hit him in the ear.

Within moments, another Kavanaugh friend, Yale basketball star Chris Dudley, was involved, Ludington said. Kavanaugh spoke to officers but did not want to say if "he threw the ice or not", according to the police memo.

"Obviously, there must have been an assault because the police were called and a report was filed", a rep for the band told Billboard, "but this is a case of mistaken identity and has nothing to do with UB40". "Democrats desperately attack Judge Kavanaugh for throwing ice during college".

Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.

First it was three allegations of sexual assault. Dudley reportedly denied the allegations.

Just when you thought the chaos surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh couldn't get any weirder, UB40 gets added to the mix.

Kavanaugh's former Yale classmate Charles "Chad" Ludington said Kavanaugh had "mischaracterized" his college drinking in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee last week, which is now looking into several allegations of sexual assault against the judge.

Mr Trump said he wanted the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee, but said he did not want to see a "witch hunt".

"Brett was getting tapped in and he was incredibly drunk, in a ridiculous outfit and had to come up to me and sing a silly song", she said. Soon after arriving, they spotted another man in the bar who looked like UB40's lead singer, Ali Campbell.

The president's son, Donald Trump Jr, has said the #MeToo movement makes him more anxious about his sons' future than his daughters'.

At the time of the incident, Cozzolino was 21 years old, though it's unclear whether he was a fellow Yale student or not.

"The next thing you know, Brett throws his beer at the guy", Ludington said.

Former classmates have described Kavanaugh as "sloppy" and "frequently" drunk.

In a statement, Dr Ludington said he was "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterisation by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".

Ms Swetnick says she went to house parties attended by Mr Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, where she said he and his friends had tried to "spike" girls' drinks.
