Emily Bazelon and Ben Protess for The New York Times have the skinny on Kavanaugh's bar fight, which Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's Yale basketball teammates, has been trying to convey to the FBI: it was ice, not beer, that Kav threw on his antagonist, and somebody else seems to have done something to rip up the guy's ear and send him to the hospital, though the person who was arrested for this offense continued to deny it:
Mr. Dudley denied the accusation, according to the report. For his part, speaking to the officers, Mr. Kavanaugh did not want “to say if he threw the ice or not,” the police report said.That's the Brett we know, already refusing to answer questions about his inappropriate or criminal behavior, at such an early age. I wonder if he asked the cops, "Do you ever throw ice at people?" Or does he reserve that rhetorical maneuver for Senators?
The date of the kerfuffle and a tantalizing paragraph of the story enabled me to learn something that others seem not to have noticed:
Yes, a couple of years out of high school and now in Connecticut, he was still drinking underage.#Kavanaugh was one of the younger ones with the good IDs (born 2/1965, he was 20 at the time of the incident) https://t.co/LTey1G22CE pic.twitter.com/dpSkwZLqKu— YasGHOUL's Farm (@Yastreblyansky) October 1, 2018
Thanks @emilybazelon for letting me scoop this.— YasGHOUL's Farm (@Yastreblyansky) October 1, 2018
I wonder if she'll notice me. Probably not, huh?
