Opposition Democrats have accused the administration of trying to limit the scope of the inquiry, amid media reports that Judge Kavanaugh's third accuser - Julie Swetnick - would not be interviewed. Cozzolino, who was suffering from a cut ear, was taken to a hospital; Dudley was taken to the department's old detention center on Union Avenue, according to the report.
The piece didn't go anywhere; Kavanaugh wasn't arrested and a man cited in the story said Kavanaugh threw a beer on the patron (the ice disappeared somehow).
Retired FBI agent Chuck Stuber, who spent his career investigating high-profile political corruption cases in North Carolina, including John Edwards, Jim Black and Mike Easley, said Ludington could be an important witness in the Kavanaugh case because he calls into question the credibility of the judge's testimony at the Senate hearings.
As a college student, embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in a bar fight that resulted in man getting hit in the head with a glass, according to a report.
"I do not believe that the heavy drinking or even loutish behavior of an 18- or even 21-year-old should condemn a person for the rest of his life", wrote Ludington.
Kavanaugh escalated the situation, Ludington said, replying with an expletive or something similar "and then threw his drink in the guy's face".
The report is the latest indication that Kavanaugh drank to excess in his youth and, apparently, became belligerent.
There was some shouting, and then the police showed up, Ludington said.
On Monday, the New York Times obtained the police report detailing the incident, which occurred in September 1985, when Kavanaugh was a junior at Yale. After attending the performance of UB40 in New Haven, Connecticut, Kavanaugh and his friends saw a man they believed to resemble the lead singer Ali Campbell. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out", he said during his testimony.
"We weren't drinking water, so it must've been some sort of mixed drink", Ludington told Cuomo.
The White House did not have any immediate reaction on behalf of itself or Kavanaugh, but directed CNN to comments made by Chris Dudley, a friend of Kavanaugh's and a former National Basketball Association player.
The incident was brought to light over the weekend by Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's classmates at Yale, who spoke out about what he felt was a "blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".
"It's the type of incident that happens pretty much daily", he said. "I first found out that my name was being dragged into the biggest news story of the year when I woke up and my wife came in and said: 'What's all this about you and Brett Kavanaugh?'", he explained.
