UB40 memes take over Twitter following report of Kavanaugh’s bar fight

According to a police report obtained by the Times , Kavanaugh, a junior at Yale at the time, and four other men were questioned by police about throwing ice at another patron, who they mistook as the lead singer of the band. "Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?"

The victim, Dom Cozzolino, was "bleeding from the right ear" and later treated at a local hospital, according to the police report. For his part, speaking to the officers, Mr. Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the police report said.

This, despite heavy evidence to the contrary, as the Times dug up the presumably drunken altercation that occurred on September 25, 1985, outside of a club called Demery's. This prompted Kavanaugh - who may get a lifetime job in the highest court in America - to allegedly throw his beer at his accusee, striking him with the bottle.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday publicly ridiculed a psychology scholar who has accused his Supreme Court pick of sexually assaulting her when they were in their teens, mocking her for not remembering details of the alleged episode even as he and his son expressed fears for American men facing unsubstantiated charges from women.

A number of Kavanaugh's former classmates have said Kavanaugh's testimony before the Senate was misleading and omitted the true nature of his drinking habits.

The FBI is expected to send Congress a report on its revived sexual harassment investigation of Brett Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday afternoon, Republican senators said of the pivotal document that could make or break his Supreme Court nomination.

Kavanaugh repeatedly admitted drinking beer during his committee testimony, pushing back against some members' questions about just how much he drank.

Prof Ford has testified that Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her as a teenager.

Tomorrow and in the next games we will see who are the leaders. "Sometimes it can help, but the most important is on the pitch". They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man'.

Dudley's attorney, Mark Sherman, said Tuesday he believes the report is mistaken and meant to indicate his client was "detained" rather than "arrested".

What did the police report say?

Chad Ludington - who played basketball at Yale with Dudley, when Kavanaugh also attended the Ivy League school - said Kavanaugh and Dudley once got into a bar fight together. After a man the group thought looked liked UB40's lead singer told them to stop looking at him and swore at them, Kavanaugh threw a beer at him. "I would also like to point out that going out never came before working hard and maintaining our focus on our goals".

CNN has reached out to the White House for reaction to Roche's comments.

"We weren't drinking water, so it must've been some sort of mixed drink", Ludington told Cuomo.

"I didn't socialize with Brett", Roche said.

And speaking at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said he "didn't particularly like" the president's remarks, adding, "I would tell him, knock it off".
