(Newser) – Another weird twist in the Brett Kavanaugh saga: The New York Times has obtained a police report confirming that the Supreme Court nominee was questioned after a bar fight in 1985. The report states that a 21-year-old man injured in the altercation accused Kavanaugh of throwing ice at him. Kavanaugh and four others were questioned by police in New Haven, Conn., but there is no sign anyone was charged. Yale classmate Rod Ludington, who has described Kavanaugh as "belligerent" when drunk, says the incident started after a UB40 concert, when he, Kavanaugh, and other friends were staring at a man in a bar called Demery's, trying to figure out if he was UB40 singer Ali Campbell.
