Brett Kavanaugh & UB40: New Report Details Bar Fight Over Band

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

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

The story in outlined in the police report resembles an incident described in a statement issued Sunday by Charles Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's Yale classmates who says the beleaguered Supreme Court nominee lied about the extent of his college alcohol habits while tearfully testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

According the the police report, Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a another patron at a bar in New Haven, Connecticut, after attending a UB40 concert with his friends.

He and four other men were questioned by New Haven Police but Kavanaugh was not arrested. The pair were reportedly in a bar called Demery's when Kavanaugh noted that the man sitting near them looked like UB40 singer Ali Campbell.

He was a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's at Yale University and said he often drank with him.

The report said that the victim, Dom Cozzolino, "was bleeding from the right ear" and was later treated at a local hospital.

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

Cerveny said it's rare for tropical cyclones to hit Arizona and that they can be "drought busters". Forecasters say Rosa has already started to weaken as it curls north off Baja California.

The professor also said Judge Kavanaugh "was often belligerent and aggressive" when drunk.

Mr Trump said if the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered something, "I'll take that into consideration". The FBI is now investigating allegations of sexual assault that have been levied against the Supreme Court nominee in recent weeks, a probe that Republicans hope will wrap up before the end of the week so lawmakers can vote on his confirmation.

Apparently Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh also likes red red wine.

When asked about Judge Kavanaugh's drinking habits during a news conference on Monday, Mr Trump said he thought his answers during the hearing were "excellent". 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..."

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who goes by Christine Blasey professionally, claims Kavanaugh forced himself on her at a high school party more than 35 years ago. Swisher told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Friday that though she never saw Kavanaugh be sexually aggressive, the judge was a "sloppy drunk".

Between the repeated lies to the Senate, the accusations of sexual assault, and the history of excessive drinking, Brett Kavanaugh's act as a ideal gentleman has worn thin as more information about his past continues to trickle out. It's unclear whether Kavanaugh was a fan of the band during his time at Yale, or whether it was pure coincidence that they became involved in an altercation related to the band.
