Another Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has challenged the truthfulness of the Supreme Court nominee's Senate testimony, saying Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank.

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college, it has emerged. The glass hit the man in the right ear, causing him to bleed.

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

A report released by police in New Haven, Connecticut, said Mr Kavanaugh was questioned after the 1985 incident but was not arrested.

Ludington said the man in question was annoyed by Kavanaugh and his classmates' attention, and got into an altercation with the Yale students, according to a report.

Sanders also shared a July tweet from Times reporter Emily Bazelon - who wrote Monday's article about the bar fight and police report - in which she disassociated herself from compliments about Kavanaugh shortly after President Donald Trump nominated him for the Supreme Court.

A newly obtained, unredacted version of the report states Dudley "was transported to Union Ave detention facility by prisoner conveyance." and a large "A" on the report indicates Dudley was arrested, according to New Haven's police chief Anthony Campbell.

Dudley denied the accusation to the police, and Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the Times reports that the police report said.

The incident was recounted by Chad Ludington, another classmate of Kavanaugh's who has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Investigation amid a supplemental background check on Kavanaugh following allegations of sexual misconduct by several women.

The man noticed Ludington, Kavanaugh and the others looking at him and - according to Ludington - aggressively asked them to stop.

There was some shouting, and then the police showed up, Ludington said.

"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".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Democrats in a tweet on Monday night for "desperately" going after Kavanaugh for the incident. Kavanaugh has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.

The report came after Kavanaugh faced questions about his past drinking in a Senate hearing into allegations he sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford in 1982.
