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.
