Kavanaugh friend Dudley arrested in 1985 bar incident

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. Their defense does not focus on the truthfulness issue, but instead on the legitimacy of bar-fighting, which they apparently see as a cherished way of life now under threat by the liberal elite.

A police report obtained by the Times shows Kavanaugh, then a junior at Yale, was questioned alongside four others by the New Haven Police Department after an "assault" occurred a local bar called Demery's. When approached, the man said something aggressive, and Kavanaugh escalated the situation by throwing his drink at him. Kavanaugh, who was not arrested, was attending Yale University. Mayorga reported the incident in 2009, but Las Vegas officials said they had no suspect in the case. Dudley allegedly threw a glass at Cozzolino, causing an injury that sent Cozzolino to the hospital.

The White House did not have any immediate reaction on behalf of itself or Kavanaugh, but directed CNN to comments made by Chris Dudley, a close friend of Kavanaugh's and a former National Basketball Association player. Chris Dudley, Kavanaugh's friend and classmate at Yale, was arrested, Hartman said, but it is unclear from the police report - which is handwritten and preserved on microfiche - whether charges were ever filed.

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




Oxley said it was college and that people drank, but "I never saw him in a state where he wasn't in control".

Murphy said that "the story is straightforward and fact-based and we fully stand behind it". "Not one time", Dudley said.

"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. "We're a college town, lots of bars, lots of establishments that serve liquor".
