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

Charles Ludington, who was a witness, said a man resembling UB40's lead singer had asked Mr Kavanaugh and his friend Chris Dudley to stop looking at him and used an expletive.

[Ludington] 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.

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.

The report said that the victim, Dom Cozzolino, "was bleeding from the right ear" and was treated at a hospital.

Kavanaugh has declined to comment on whether he threw beer or ice or anything whatsoever at Cozzolino, in the wake of the report. There was also no indication any charges were filed.

Mr. Kavanaugh cursed, he said, and then "threw his beer at the guy". Parts of the incident are corroborated by a police report.

Julie Swetnick says she went to house parties attended by Judge Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, where she said he and his friends had tried to "spike" girls' drinks.

The police report referred to the altercation as "an assault", according to the Times.

The report got swift pushback from the Trump team, with spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders describing the account in which police investigated Kavanaugh's allegedly drunken violent behavior and he refused to answer their questions as "desperate".

He noted that it was not Judge Kavanaugh's drinking habits in college that anxious him - it was the fact that he made questionable statements under oath.

In his statement, which the New York Times published on Saturday, Ludington said those assertions were false.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests from the Times for comment on Monday.

United States media report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation spoke with Ms Ramirez, who accuses Judge Kavanaugh of exposing his genitals to her during a college party, on Sunday.

"The guy swung at Brett", Mr. Ludington continued.

Dudley then took his drink and "proceeded to smash it up against the guy's head", Ludington recalled. He's Donald Trump's nomination for the US Supreme Court, but he's also at the centre of quite a bit of controversy, with multiple women coming forward to accuse him of alleged sexual misconduct in the past. He was a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's at Yale University and said he often drank with him.

There was some shouting, and then the police showed up, Ludington said.

Ludington said he had resigned himself to seeing Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court until the latest allegations emerged and the judge began defending himself on national TV and before lawmakers with what he believes are lies about heavy drinking.
