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

The police report indicates that Kavanaugh and four other people were questioned by cops and the SCOTUS nominee is on record as "not wanting to say if he threw the ice or not".

A 21-year-old man accused Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him "for some unknown reason", according to the report obtained by the Times.

Ludington said in his statement he witnessed Kavanaugh throw a beer in a man's face once for making a semi-hostile remark, "starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail".

Ludington is not the first of Kavanaugh's former classmates to come forward and tell the story of a young man who drank to excess in college.

He said that the altercation happened after a UB40 concert on September 25, when he and a group of people went to Demery's and were drinking pints.

The White House sent out a statement from Dudley, a former National Basketball Association player, supporting Kavanaugh on Monday, where he said he never saw the Supreme Court nominee blackout while at Yale.

"The person sometimes being described in the press is not the Brett Kavanaugh that I have known as a good friend for 35 years", Dudley's statement read.

"Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students". Kavanaugh denied before the Senate Judicary Committee last week all allegations of sexual misconduct, and said he'd never drank to the point of blacking out.

Hartman said Tuesday that there is no supplemental report on the alleged 1985 incident, adding that it occurred at "a local bar that no longer exists, and unfortunately everyone who was involved from the police end has retired decades ago". "Not one time", Dudley said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made note of Bazelon's comment in a tweet of her own, tying it to what she called a desperate Democratic attack on Kavanaugh. I never ever saw Brett blackout.

"Without making it sound less important, this is a college town - things haven't changed in that we deal with these types of incidents on a daily basis", Hartman said.
