The incident was first mentioned in a statement from Charles “Chad” Ludington, a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale who drank with him regularly. “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,” Ludington said in a statement Sunday.

The report does not list any arrests, and it appears that no charges were filed.

According to Ludington, the incident occurred after a UB40 concert where Kavanaugh and several others were drinking at a bar called Demery’s. The group, according to Ludington, noticed a man who looked like the UB40’s lead singer.
