Police questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after he got into a bar fight in 1985, during his time at Yale.
Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him "for some unknown reason".
The report said the victim, Dom Cozzolino, "was bleeding from the right ear" and was treated at a hospital.
After Kavanaugh and former Portland Trail Blazers standout center Dudley reportedly injured the man, he was interviewed by police and refused to say what he had done.
In addition to citing Kavanaugh as a potential instigator of the fight, the police report also placed Kavanaugh's former friend and classmate, Chris Dudley, in the heart of the altercation.
Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.
There was considerable confusion last Friday, when Donald Trump ordered a reopened investigation into the "credible allegations" against Brett Kavanaugh. But Kavanaugh's willingness to lie under oath "should have effect", he said. The report has since been corroborated by Kavanaugh's old classmate, Chad Ludlington.
The altercation is said to have happened in a bar called Demery's that closed in 1994. For the fact is, at Yale, and I can speak to no other times, Brett was a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker.
"It was sort of a general feature of hanging out with Brett in college", he said in an interview.
The Republicans have allowed a one-week FBI investigation to go ahead and then the Senate will vote on his nomination. Soon after arriving, they spotted another man in the bar who looked like UB40's lead singer, Ali Campbell. Agents soon contacted him, he said Monday night.
There was some shouting, and then the police showed up, Ludington said.
Mr Trump's answer was a direct response to Democrats who have suggested that Judge Kavanaugh was less than forthcoming in his testimony under oath about his alcohol use while in high school and college. Ludington played basketball at Yale (and later, professionally in Europe) and said that athletes comprised much of Kavanaugh's social circle.
Ludington said he came forward not because he believes Kavanaugh should be held accountable for everything he did as a young college student, but because he felt he lied about his behavior during the senate hearing.
