The New York Times is reporting that Brett Kavanaugh was questioned by police in relation to a bar fight when he was studying for his undergraduate degree at Yale University.
In 1985, Kavanaugh and friends attended a UB40 concert where a fight broke out after Kavanaugh allegedly threw beer on another patron.
> He said that the altercation happened after a UB40 concert, when he and a group of people went to Demery’s and were drinking pints. At one point, they were sitting near a man who, they thought, resembled Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40.
> “We’re trying to figure out if it’s him,” he said.
> When the man noticed Mr. Ludington, Mr. Kavanaugh and the others looking at him, he objected and aggressively asked them to stop, Mr. Ludington said.
> It was then, he said, that Mr. Kavanaugh “threw his beer at the guy.”
After Kavanaugh threw his beer at the man, a melee broke out.
> “The guy swung at Brett,” Mr. Ludington continued.
> At that point, Mr. Dudley “took his beer and smashed it into the head of the guy, who by now had Brett in an embrace. I then tried to pull Chris back, and a bunch of other guys tried to pull the other guy back.
> I don’t know what Brett was doing in the melee, but there was blood, there was glass, there was beer and there was some shouting, and the police showed up.”
Kavanaugh was questioned by police after the altercation but he never charged in connection with the incident. Kavanaugh maintained under oath that he didn't excessively drank during his high school and undergraduate years.
