A Somers man was arrested after an altercation at a softball game in Vernon earlier in the summer.
Jonathan Feigenbaum, 36, of Somers, popped out in the outfield, started swearing and slamming his metal bat on the ground during a Vernon Recreational League slow pitch softball game on July 27, police said.
Vernon police said Feigenbaum, swung the bat, then let it go and it hit the catcher. The catcher sustained serious physical injuries, according to police.
Police investigated issued an arrest warrant charging Feigenbaum with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. He turned himself in on the warrant on Sept. 21.
Feigenbaum told police that the bat slipped out of his sweaty hands, according to court documents.
He was held on $10,000 surety bond and was brought court on Sept. 21, police said.
According to court records, Feigenbaum has not entered a plea. He was released and is due back in court on Oct. 17.
