Police questioned Kavanaugh after bar fight in 1985

New York Times Writer of ‘Bar Fight’ Kavanaugh Story Blasted Him on Twitter When First Nominated

NYT Regrets Assigning Writer Critical Of Kavanaugh To 1985 Bar Fight Story

According to a report in the New York Times, the fight began when, after going to see a UB40 concert in 1985, Kavanaugh and his friends mistook a man in a CT bar for the band's lead singer, Ali Campbell.

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. The New York Times received a police report of the incident, which happened at a local Yale bar in 1985. Dudley stressed that while he and Kavanaugh drank together in college, he never saw Kavanaugh black out. The New York Times first reported the incident.

Opposition Democrats have accused the administration of trying to limit the scope of the inquiry, amid media reports that Judge Kavanaugh's third accuser - Julie Swetnick - would not be interviewed. Ludington said that while he doesn't believe a person should be condemned for life for youthful drinking or "loutish behavior", he thinks lying under oath in front of the Senate should have "consequences" and he has taken his information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New York Times reports. Parts of the incident are corroborated by a police report.

Previously the White House only gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation the permission to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct by Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothes at a high school party in the 1980s, and Deborah Ramirez, who alleged Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while drunk at a party at Yale, also in the early 1980s. Dudley also did not respond to the Times, and Cozzolino declined to comment to the newspaper.

She said she was able to get away and run into the bathroom after Judge jumped on her and Kavanaugh, knocking them off the bed. But the White House said Wednesday it was up to the GOP-controlled Senate. "They just want to get the basic facts".

Former UB40 frontman Ali Campbell has confirmed he's not the man U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in a bar brawl with following one of their gigs. At a bar called Demery's, a small group of students believed they spotted the band's lead singer. Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him "for some unknown reason".

"We weren't drinking water, so it must've been some sort of mixed drink", Ludington told Cuomo.

Dudley said Kavanaugh consumed alcohol, but never too much.

Dudley then took his drink and "proceeded to smash it up against the guy's head", Ludington recalled. "I don't know what Brett was doing in the melee, but there was blood, there was glass, there was beer and there was some shouting, and the police showed up".
