A witness to the fight said that Chris Dudley, a Yale basketball player who was friends with Mr. Kavanaugh, then hit the man in the ear with a glass, according to the police report, which was obtained by The New York Times. 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. The man then swung at Kavanaugh and Dudley struck him with a bottle, Ludington said. Kavanaugh was among those questioned in relation to the incident but was not arrested. There was also no indication any charges were filed.

The revelation nonetheless adds to an emerging portrait of Kavanaugh that contradicts the testimony he gave to USA lawmakers last week. Blasey testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that she was certain Kavanaugh was the one to pin her down, force himself on her, attempt to take off her clothes and then hold a hand over her mouth when she tried to scream when they were teenagers.

Mr. Dudley denied the accusation, according to the report.

This article has been updated with new details about the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh. The fate of Kavanaugh's nomination has meanwhile hung in the balance.

Ludington said that he had been in touch with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was accused of throwing ice on another man, according to the testimony of a man on the scene. The report also suggests Ramirez was uncomfortable in Kavanaugh's presence at a wedding 10 years after they graduated.

North Carolina State University professor Chad Ludington has joined a handful of other former classmates of Brett Kavanaugh in contradicting the Supreme Court nominee's claims about his past drinking habits.

And as they wait for a chance to fly out, people are also enduring heat of more the 90 degrees, with little to sustain them. The quake also caused power outages, which in turn prevented authorities from being able to warn people about the tsunami.

This ordinarily would fall into the case of nothingburger - who cares about a college bar fight over 30 years later? - except that it will call into question whether Kavanaugh has been truthful when he has said that he was not belligerent under the influence of alcohol.

Kavanaugh cursed, he said, and "threw his beer at the guy".

"I was surprised at how vocal he was about the fact that he likes beer and he's had a little bit of difficulty", Trump told reporters at a press conference.

The president nonetheless continued to defend his supreme court nominee at a rally in Tennessee on Monday, telling supporters Kavanaugh was a "very fine person" being targeted by Democrats.

"It is truth that is at stake, and I believe that the ability to speak the truth, even when it does not reflect well upon oneself, is a paramount quality we seek in our nation's most powerful judges,"he said". Great student, great intellect.
