NY Times 'Bar Fight' Reporter Opposed Kavanaugh in July

Just when you thought the chaos surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh couldn't get any weirder, UB40 gets added to the mix. Kavanaugh denied before the Senate Judicary Committee last week all allegations of sexual misconduct, and said he'd never drank to the point of blacking out. Their defense does not focus on the truthfulness issue, but instead on the legitimacy of bar-fighting, which they apparently see as a cherished way of life now under threat by the liberal elite.

A report released Tuesday by police in New Haven, Connecticut, says Kavanaugh was questioned after the 1985 incident, but wasn't arrested. The man told the three to stop looking at him and Kavanaugh flung his beer, Ludington said, starting a brawl.

As the FBI investigates claims of sexual assault levelled against the controversial Supreme Court nominee in the wake of his Senate testimony last week, one of his Yale classmates is alleging that Kavanaugh's sworn testimony that he never drank enough to black out is not entirely accurate.

"It's the type of incident that happens pretty much daily", he said. 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.

Dudley denied the accusation to the police, and Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the Times reports that the police report said.

Dudley has not replied to CNN's repeated requests for comment. I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing. "It is from this experience that I concluded that although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk", Roche said in a statement.

While Bazelon and Ben Protess wrote Kavanaugh was "not arrested", she speculated on Twitter Monday night that there was "no report of an arrest" and it "could have been expunged". He also said he never saw Kavanaugh black out. "We're a college town, lots of bars, lots of establishments that serve liquor".
