Bellevue dispute leads to battery charge

Suspect allegedly brandished baseball bat

Express Staff Writer

A 50-year-old Bellevue man was arrested Sunday evening for allegedly pushing and threatening an acquaintance of his daughter with a baseball bat.

Bellevue Marshal Ron Taylor said Michael Rose faces a felony charge of aggravated battery in an incident that allegedly occurred at about 10:30 p.m. at the suspect's home on Sixth Street.

Taylor identified the alleged victim as Collin Hand, 17, of Hailey.

The marshal explained that Hand had been dating Rose's daughter but was told earlier by Rose "never to come on the property again."

Taylor said Hand showed up at Rose's home on Sunday evening and was told to leave. When he refused, a shoving match ensued between the two.

Taylor said no one was injured, but Rose was arrested because he allegedly brandished a baseball bat, which can be considered a deadly weapon. He said Rose didn't strike Hand with the bat but pushed him with it during the dispute.
