A local man is in critical condition at ECMC with a serious head injury after an apparent bar fight Sunday in Batavia.
Shane Bell, 47, of Jackson Street is charged with second-degree assault, a class-D felony, for allegedly punching 51-year-old Scott Baker in the head near The Harvester, a bar on Harvester Avenue.
Police were called to the scene a little before 9 p.m. yesterday as The Harvester was hosting its annual pig roast. Bell was taken into custody and held without bail.
Police are looking for more witnesses to interview. Anyone with information is asked to call BPD, 345-6350.
