Local TV reporter charged after fight at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – A Milwaukee TV reporter has been charged with a felony after a fight at Miller Park, on Friday, April 6.  

According to a criminal complaint, A.J. Bayatpour got into a fight with another local TV reporter. It says a co-worker felt insulted by something Bayatpour said and her fiancé, who works for a competing station, tried to come to her defense.

Things came to a head at the end of the game when the victim tried to confront Bayatpour and Bayatpour started throwing punches.

The complaint says the victim suffered a broken nose, chipped tooth, and fractured orbital bone.

Bayatpour left the stadium and was later arrested.

He’s expected in court Wednesday afternoon.

If convicted, he faces up to three and a half years in prison.
