UB40 swears it has 'nothing to do' with Kavanaugh's alleged bar fight

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

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

(According to the report, Kavanaguh "did not want to say if he threw the ice or not.") UB40 have now responded to the news saying the band, like most people, wants nothing to do with this Brett Kavanaugh mess. Dudley, who played basketball for Yale and then went on to play in the NBA, is cited as having smashed a beer glass over Cozzolino's head. 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. It happened after Kavanaugh attended a concert by the group UB40 in September 1985 in New Haven, Connecticut, where his college, Yale University, is located.

Dudley and Cozzolino didn't immediately return messages on Tuesday.

Ludington says that a brawl then broke out, with Kavanaugh later questioned by police about his involvement (he was neither arrested nor charged).

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.

As the FBI investigates claims of sexual assault levelled against the controversial Supreme Court nominee in the wake of his Senate testimony last week, one of his Yale classmates is alleging that Kavanaugh's sworn testimony that he never drank enough to black out is not entirely accurate. "And in all the years I have known him, I have never seen him to be disrespectful or inappropriate with women". I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing.

"The person [reporters] are trying to describe", Dudley added, "would not be able to function day to day". The paper said, in retrospect, it should have assigned a newsroom reporter to the story but said it stood behind its veracity.

"Without making it sound less important, this is a college town - things haven't changed in that we deal with these types of incidents on a daily basis", Hartman said.
