A Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accused him on Sunday of being untruthful in his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee and making a "blatant mischaracterization" of his drinking while in college.

According to the police report, Kavanaugh was reluctant to say whether "he threw the ice or not".

According to a police report obtained by the Times, a 21-year old man accused Kavanaugh of throwing ICE at him.

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

When the man noticed the group, he used an expletive and asked them to stop staring, Mr Ludington said, at which point Mr Kavanaugh "threw his beer at the guy".

Though she alleges the Supreme Court nominee lied about his drinking habits, Swisher says she never saw Kavanaugh act sexually aggressive and was not a witness to allegations made by another Yale friend, Deborah Ramirez. "Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?'" Sanders wrote on Twitter.

The professor plans to speak with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday, according the New York Times. Put aside the fact that there's no logical connection between the two anyway, or that one blackout somehow proves sexual assault; they haven't even been able to show that Kavanaugh blacked out from drinking ever.

Ludington has said he was willing to share his account with the FBI, which is conducting a one-week investigation in the wake of the hearing.

Mr Kavanaugh denied he had or has a drinking problem.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-10 on Friday to recommend Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination advance to a full Senate hearing. So, Kavanaugh's drinking has been investigated, and subsequently, Dudley has come up.

The Yale acquaintance also mentioned Demery's, the bar where the altercation took place, and said he, Kavanaugh and others had been drinking beer.

The professor also said Judge Kavanaugh "was often belligerent and aggressive" when drunk.

One of Kavanaugh's classmates claimed that following a UB40 concert, a group that included Kavanaugh went to a bar where they spotted a man who some in the group believed resembled a member of the band. "Turns out it wasn't him", Ludington said. "I don't know what Brett was doing exactly, but I was pulling Chris back and someone else was pulling the other guy back", Ludington said. The man then swung at Kavanaugh and Dudley struck him with a bottle, Ludington said.

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

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.
