Brett Kavanaugh 'involved in bar brawl after UB40 gig'

Brett Kavanaugh 'involved in bar brawl after UB40 gig'

Earlier in the day, a former pal of Kavanaugh's recounted to news outlets that time in college when Kavanaugh allegedly threw the ice from his drink into a man's face, starting a fight that landed a pal in jail.

Kavanaugh and four other men were questioned by the New Haven, Connecticut, police department as a result of the incident in September 1985, the Times reports. A witness reportedly said that Chris Dudley, a close friend of Kavanaugh's who has come out in support of his nomination, then hit the man in the ear with a glass. The Times' story was based on a police report about the incident.

Another of Kavanaugh's Yale classmates, Charles Ludington, described this incident to The Washington Post, saying it occurred after a UB40 concert.

When the man noticed Mr. Ludington, Mr. Kavanaugh and the others looking at him, he objected and told them to stop it, adding an expletive, Mr. Ludington said.

Others who have spoken with the Federal Bureau of Investigation include a Yale classmate who has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were students.

The 1985 altercation broke out after Ludington, Dudley and Kavanaugh mistook a Demery's patron for the lead singer of UB40, a British reggae band they'd just seen, Ludington told The Times. Ludington said he often saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption", and said he often became "belligerent and aggressive" while drinking. "This is not a man who said that he was ideal with respect to alcohol", Trump said during a news conference on Monday.

Mr Judge has denied the allegations, as has Mr Kavanaugh. "I mean, he talked about things that happened when he drank". She said she was inebriated but confident enough in her recollection to go public and ask the FBI to investigate the claims.

In a follow-up tweet, the Yale Law Schooler lecturer wrote: "Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students".

Sams, a lawyer in Atlanta who was a fraternity brother of Kavanaugh and Dudley, said he does not remember seeing Kavanaugh there. "I never saw him be sexually aggressive, but he definitely was sloppy drunk".

The allegation was made by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, who brought intense public scrutiny to the matter in her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. He has strongly denied the accusation.

USA media report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation spoke with Ms Ramirez, who accuses Judge Kavanaugh of exposing his genitals to her during a college party, on Sunday. I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes.
