Police report reveals Brett Kavanaugh allegedly threw ice during bloody bar fight

A classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has accused him of lying under oath about his "heavy" drinking.

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.

Ludington said in the statement he often drank with Kavanaugh when they were classmates, and said Kavanaugh had played down "the degree and frequency" of his drinking in his testimony. Ludington remembers the incident as being started after Kavanaugh threw a beer at the man, but regardless of what was thrown, the fight culminated with the man, then 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino, going to the hospital after former National Basketball Association player Chris Dudley threw a glass at Cozzolino's ear, causing it to bleed.

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

Mr Kavanaugh denied he had or has a drinking problem.

The incident would become a hot topic of conversation among the other members of the basketball team because its star at the time, Dudley, was involved, according to another team member. 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..." At one point, they were sitting near a man who, they thought, resembled Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40. "I would also like to point out that going out never came before working hard and maintaining our focus on our goals".

The man Kavanaugh's group reportedly homed in on told the group to stop looking at him.

He has also disputed reports the judge drank excessively.


In response to her testimony, Judge Kavanaugh said he had never assaulted her or anyone else.

Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's college friends, told the New York Times that the altercation occurred after attending a UB40 concert.

Last week, Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he drank but was never out of control.

"I like beer, I still like beer, ' Mr Kavanaugh testified under oath". We talked at night as freshman roommates do and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends. "She is not a newsroom reporter", the spokesperson for The Times said.

Ludington said that he had been in touch with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday afternoon to deny allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that he had once tried to sexually assault her at a small get together in the summer of 1982.

One would presume that police would have detained Kavanaugh had that been the case, at least until he sobered up enough to be able to responsibly take care of himself.
