A Somers man is facing a pair of criminal charges for an outburst at a recreational slow-pitch softball game in Vernon in July, an arrest report indicates.
Jonathan Feigenbaum, 36, of 167 Springfield Rd. in Somers, is due back in court next month after making an appearance on Friday, a court clerk said. He surrendered to Vernon police on Friday, the report indicates.
Police said that during a recreational league game on July 27, Feigenbaum was at bat and popped out to the outfield. He began swearing and slamming his aluminum bat on the ground, police said.
Feigenbaum then swung the bat and let go of it, and the bat hit the opposing catcher, who was standing behind home plate, in the neck. The catcher sustained "serious physical injuries," according to an arrest report and a sergeant familiar with the case.
The incident was investigated by police and a warrant was filed for Feigenbaum's arrest, police said.
His bond was set at $10,000 while he was awaiting arraignment, police said. It was reduced to a promise to appear.
