Man arrested for threatening rival with bat in spat over woman

A Cheektowaga man was arrested by City of Tonawanda police Saturday night after he kicked in a door and threatened another man with an aluminum baseball bat.

Ian C. Arnitz, 29, of Huth Road, was charged with third-degree menacing, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon, stemming from a dispute with a man living on Johnson Street in Tonawanda.

At about 9 p.m. Saturday night, Arnitz allegedly kicked in the door of the residence, broke the door frame and began swinging the bat at the man, who pointed a pellet pistol at Arnetz to defend himself. Police determined the dispute involved a woman.

Arnitz was held on $500 bail.
