Adair "A.J." Bayatpour, 31, a reporter for WITI-TV who is from the Chicago area, made his initial appearance in court Wednesday and was released on a $2,500 signature bond. The prosecutor asked for a $500 signature bond, but court commissioner Barry Phillips said he was increasing it based on the seriousness of the charge.

Two reporters were involved in an altercation during Friday's game between the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers , and as a result, one is facing felony charges . A police report, obtained by FTV

According to the criminal complaint:

Ben Jordan, a reporter at WTMJ-TV, was at the Brewers vs. Cubs game Friday night with his fiancée, Madeline Anderson, a reporter with Bayatpour at WITI. The couple noticed Bayatpour at the game and invited him to sit with them in extra seats. Around the sixth inning, Anderson showed Bayatpour a photo of a bulldog on her phone and said it represented how she felt.

He said he thought Anderson looked disinterested. Anderson perceived the comment that she appeared disinterested as somehow pertaining to her on-air appearance as a TV reporter. Jordan asked Bayatpour to step away, but he said he was still watching the game.

When the game was over, Jordan asked Bayatpour to apologize to Anderson, which he did, but again said she seemed disinterested. That led Jordan and Bayatpour to confront each other while trading insults.

Jordan told police Bayatpour punched him three times in the face before people around them intervened and Bayatpour left the area.

Police found Jordan about 11:20 p.m. on the loge level near Section 225 of Miller Park, bleeding from the face. He was taken to a hospital and diagnosed with a broken nose, a chipped tooth and orbital bone fractures.

After his arrest, Bayatpour confirmed Anderson's account.

Bayatpour said that during his insult-laden dust-up with Jordan about the apology, Jordan made a threat and Bayatpour "instinctively" stepped back and hit Jordan first. Bayatpour's attorney, Julius Kim, called the case a "sad" situation and said the criminal complaint doesn't tell the whole story.

Phillips ordered that Bayatpour have no contact with Jordan and Anderson. His preliminary hearing was set for April 24.

Jessica Bellucci, a spokeswoman for Tribune Broadcasting, said Bayatpour won't be reporting for Fox 6 while the incident is under investigation.

Tyler Barnes, senior vice president of communications with the Brewers, said the team doesn't comment on security matters.
