Two men were arrested after an early morning domestic dispute Monday in which one reportedly struck the other in the neck with a baseball bat, Amsterdam police said.

A mason jar, fish tank and kitchen door were also a part of the fray, which occurred roughly 12:30 a.m. at 1 McClellan Ave.

The department responded to a call of a disturbance at that address. Upon arrival, officers were advised by a female at that residence that her son and boyfriend must have gotten into an argument and fled the scene.

After conducting interviews and locating the suspects, police arrested Harry A. Ballard, 48, and Brad E. Miller, 25, both of the aforementioned address.

Miller reportedly started the fight after throwing a mason jar at his mom's boyfriend, who responded by grabbing a baseball bat and striking Miller in the neck, according to a report. Miller reportedly became irate, then overturning and breaking the fish tank, and smashing the kitchen door.

Ballard was charged with second-degree assault, a class D felony, for allegedly striking Miller with the bat. Miller was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a class E felony, for reportedly breaking the tank and smashing the door.

During the arrest, Miller reportedly complained of dizziness, and was transported to St. Mary's Hospital by GAVAC. He was treated and released from the hospital, but both were held for arraignment in Amsterdam City Court before Judge Howard Aison.

Officers Malatino and Ortiz conducted the arrests.
