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

Of course, the main point here is that another figure from Kavanaugh's past has come forward with evidence of the sort of boorish behavior Kavanaugh has been accused of but steadfastly denied while under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

A report released Tuesday by police in New Haven, Connecticut, says Kavanaugh was questioned after the 1985 incident, but wasn't arrested.

Sure, it was a paraphrased statement rather than a direct quote from Ludington himself, but still, interesting that it made it to the airwaves.

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.

"I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking, and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth", Chad Ludington said in a statement to CNN. Cozzolino, who was suffering from a cut ear, was taken to a hospital; Dudley was taken to the department's old detention center on Union Avenue, according to the report.

In addition to citing Kavanaugh as a potential instigator of the fight, the police report also placed Kavanaugh's former friend and classmate, Chris Dudley, in the heart of the altercation.

According to the police report, the scuffle occurred during the future Supreme Court nominee's junior year at Yale, when he allegedly threw some ice at a guy who was upset that Kavanaugh and his crew were staring at him. The man told the three to stop looking at him and Kavanaugh flung his beer, Ludington said, starting a brawl. The Times' story was based on a police report about the incident. "I never saw him be sexually aggressive, but he definitely was sloppy drunk".

There is also an "O", indicating "other", next to Kavanaugh's name in the report.

She added in a follow-up tweet: "Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students. She is not a newsroom reporter", the spokesperson for The Times said.
