Kavanaugh faced police questioning over 1985 bar brawl

04 October 2018

Chris Dudley, Kavanaugh's friend and classmate at Yale, was arrested, Hartman said, but it is unclear from the police report - which is handwritten and preserved on microfiche - whether charges were ever filed.

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.

Kavanaugh's drinking habits figure prominently in the sexual-assault allegations levied against him by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

Chad Ludington, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's, has said Kavanaugh did not tell the truth about his drinking in his testimony Thursday to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Cozzolino has not yet commented on the situation.

A White House spokesman did not respond to emails about Ludington's account.

The White House sent out a statement from Dudley, a former National Basketball Association player, supporting Kavanaugh Monday, where he said he never saw the Supreme Court nominee blackout while at Yale.

Now, even The New York Times is admitting it was a bad idea to have an opinion writer author a "news" story. According to an NBC News report on Monday, Kavanaugh and his team were aware of the allegation before it went to press and sought to coordinate behind the scenes to refute it.

In response, the California attorney general and 21 other state attorneys general filed a lawsuit in January in the D.C. The move has now resulted in the United States Justice Department filing a suit against the state, Reuters reported .

The paper has published police reports but personal information has been redacted.

She added in a follow-up tweet: "Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students". During that altercation, another member of Kavanaugh's group allegedly "took his beer and smashed it into the head of the guy".

President Donald Trump said Kavanaugh's testimony last week showed that his second Supreme Court nominee had "a little bit of difficulty" with alcohol when he was younger. Also a Kavanaugh friend she says was in the room.

In a memory that slightly differs from the ice-throwing police report to which The Times refers, Ludington said that Kavanaugh "threw his beer" at a man sitting at the bar - a man whom the group first believed might be the singer of the band UB40.

Bazelon, a Yale Law School graduate and lecturer, wrote on July 9 that she wanted to "strongly disassociate" herself from praise of Kavanaugh and fretted he would be the fifth vote in a "hard-right turn" that would harm democracy. But there are no indications agents have questioned Julie Swetnick, who has alleged she was victimized at a party attended by Kavanaugh and his friends.

What did the police report say?

Ali Campbell, the guy Kavanaugh thought he assaulted. For the fact is, at Yale, and I can speak to no other times, Brett was a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out", he said.

"I was Brett Kavanaugh's roommate at Yale University in the Fall of 1983. That's pretty much where we are and I don't see this going any further with the New Haven Police Department".
