Charles Ludington, a history professor at N.C. State University and college friend of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, plans to deliver a statement to the FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday regarding Kavanaugh's violent and drunken behavior while at Yale University.
According to the Washington Post, who obtained Ludington's statement, Ludington witnessed a belligerently drunk Kavanaugh respond to a semi-hostile comment by throwing a beer at the commenter's face and starting a fight, ending in their mutual friend going to jail.
“When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive," Ludington said in his statement to The Post. "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 his statement he didn't believe heavy drinking or aggressive behavior by an 18 or 21 year old should condemn them forever, but he was troubled by the way Kavanaugh misrepresented his past actions and drinking behavior in his Senate testimony.
“However ... 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,” he said in the statement.
