A former Yale basketball player who socialized with Brett Kavanaugh back when they were in college issued a statement late on Sunday about Kavanaugh’s drinking, and he recounted a story about the judge starting a fight.
Chad Ludington, an associate professor at North Carolina State University, told the New York Times, “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive. On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”
According to the Washington Post, Ludington plans on providing a statement about the alleged fight to the FBI on Monday.
Ludington went on to say that he felt like Kavanaugh lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday in regard to his drinking habits.
“…Brett was a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker. I know, because, especially in our first two years of college, I often drank with him. On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer,” it said. “If he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences.”
Many Democrats have thought the same, and are now considering an investigation into if Kavanaugh committed perjury during his testimony. (RELATED: Still Lacking Evidence Of Sexual Assault, Democrats Now Want Kavanaugh Investigated For Perjury)
The Times also reported that Ludington has donated small amounts to Democrat candidates in the past.
