    in assault with bat

    A man who allegedly struck another man multiple times with an aluminum baseball bat during a fight Monday in Poultney denied a felony charge in Rutland criminal court Tuesday.

    Timothy S. Petty, 46, of Poultney pleaded innocent to aggravated assault, which carries a potential 15-year jail sentence.

    Judge Theresa DiMauro released Petty on a $5,000 unsecured bond and on court-ordered conditions that he stay away from Eugene Webster, the man he allegedly hit with the bat.

    Vermont State Police said they arrested Petty after a fight in front of his home on Maple Street in Poultney at around 6:15 p.m. Monday. Police said Petty used the bat to hit Webster in the leg, arm and head.
