  • Liz Swisher a former Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh alleges he lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee

Getty Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The New York Times reports that former Blazer and OR governor candidate Chris Dudley was in a 1985 bar fight with friend and now Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

According to a police report obtained by the Times, a 21-year old man accused Kavanaugh of throwing ICE at him.

Noticing they were staring at him, the man aggressively told the quartet to stop, at which point Kavanaugh "threw his beer at the guy", Ludington said.

Chris Dudley, a former Yale basketball player and a friend of Kavanaugh's, allegedly threw a glass at Cozzolino, according to a witness cited in the police report. After the man responded in kind, Kavanaugh threw a beer in his face, said Charles Ludington, a former Yale basketball player who's now a history professor at North Carolina State University.

Judge Kavanaugh's behaviour at Yale is under the spotlight, with Prof Ludington and Mr Dudley among several of his classmates who have recently spoken out. Amy Klobuchar (D - Minn.) on whether or not he had ever had a night where he "drank so much that [he] couldn't remember what happened", the Kavanaugh responded, "I think you've probably had beers, Senator..."

While a student at Yale, Kavanaugh got into a bar fight with a patron he mistakenly believed to be UB40 singer Ali Campbell.

His impact is always obvious, but we could play football before Virgil van Dijk and we can play without Virgil, thank God. We needed time to adapt, yes. "We have to wait, he didn't train with the team so far", confirmed Klopp.

Swisher describes befriending Kavanaugh during her freshman year. "I never saw him be sexually aggressive, but he definitely was sloppy drunk".

Ludington said Dudley took a pint glass or beer bottle and smashed it against the man's head.

There is also an "O", indicating "other", next to Kavanaugh's name in the report. Put aside the fact that there's no logical connection between the two anyway, or that one blackout somehow proves sexual assault; they haven't even been able to show that Kavanaugh blacked out from drinking ever.

On Sunday, Ludington said publicly that he meant to discuss the incident with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Raleigh, N.C., where he is an associate professor at North Carolina State University.

Drinking as a college student is hardly unique and Ludington said he had no thought of making his story public when Kavanaugh was first nominated to the nation's highest court. He said he often saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption".

Deborah Ramirez attended Yale at the same time as Judge Kavanaugh. "Not one time", Dudley said.

According to the messages, Kavanaugh asked at least one friend to go on the record in his defense. He's Donald Trump's nomination for the US Supreme Court, but he's also at the centre of quite a bit of controversy, with multiple women coming forward to accuse him of alleged sexual misconduct in the past.
