Brett Kavanaugh got into a college bar fight after seeing UB40

According to an NBC News report on Monday, Kavanaugh and his team were aware of the allegation before it went to press and sought to coordinate behind the scenes to refute it. That man was treated for his injuries at the local hospital.

Mr Kavanaugh passionately denied the accusations at a Senate committee hearing on Thursday, and challenged suggestions he had a drinking problem at the time.

When the man noticed Mr. Ludington, Mr. Kavanaugh and the others looking at him, he objected and told them to stop it, adding an expletive, Mr. Ludington said.

Ludington said Dudley took a pint glass or beer bottle and smashed it against the man's head.

Trevor Noah took a mental health break from the Supreme Court nomination battle on Wednesday's Daily Show - "If you took a shot every time the news mentioned Brett Kavanaugh, you would be Brett Kavanaugh" - and circled back to President Trump, elected in part because "he sold himself as a self-made billionaire who would do for America what he did for himself".

Ludington said he came forward not because he believes Kavanaugh should be held accountable for everything he did as a young college student, but because he felt he lied about his behavior during the senate hearing.

USA media has reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has begun interviewing Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's former best friend and a key figure in the misconduct allegations levelled by Ms Ford.

Kavanaugh has stumbled en route to being confirmed for a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, amid allegations of sexual misconduct and scrutiny from Senate Democrats on his drinking.

The man noticed Ludington, Kavanaugh and the others looking at him and - according to Ludington - aggressively asked them to stop. The Republicans have allowed a one-week FBI investigation to go ahead and then the Senate will vote on his nomination.

Then there is the crowd factor with the first tee's near-7,000 capacity stand certain to ramp the pressure on the Americans. Reed joked. "When I first saw that on the first tee, I looked up and felt like I kept looking up and up and up".

The report was a freaky twist in Kavanaugh's continuing attempts to make it to the Supreme Court, and provided a rare opportunity for some levity to those following the story. The New Haven Police Department questioned him and four others, but no one was arrested and no charges were filed.

It then quoted the Times' statement and said, "That's not just any old statement". This incident was first referenced in a statement made by Kavanaugh's former classmate Chad Ludington, now an associate professor of history at North Carolina State University, who said Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank.

They were sitting near a man who they thought looked like the lead singer of UB40, Ali Campbell, and were trying to figure out whether it was him, Ludington told Cuomo.

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

Ludington spoke to Cuomo tonight for a chat on what he knew Kavanaugh's boozy conduct, as well as a newly-uncovered police report connecting Kavanaugh to a 1985 incident at a bar.

"If I were doing the interview, I would want to get as many specifics as I could", Stuber said.

A White House spokesman did not respond to emails about Ludington's account.

"I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing". And I do believe that Brett's actions as a 53-year-old federal judge matter. "I've got boys and I've got girls, and when I see what's going on right now, it's scary", Trump Jr said in the interview to Daily Mail TV, prompting a question about who he anxious for more.
