GROTON, N.Y. — A Newfield man is facing charges after police say he threatened a woman with a bat and damaged property at a Groton home this week.
New York State Troopers responded to a Groton home at 12:48 a.m. Monday on School Street after receiving reports of a domestic dispute, police said.
David A. Swansbrough, 36, was at the home and troopers said an investigation indicated that he threatened a woman with a bat and damaged a bedroom door. He was charged with felony third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and misdemeanors for fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree menacing.
He was arraigned at the Groton Town Court and originally remanded to the Tompkins County Jail in lieu of posting $7,500 cash bail or $15,000 property bond. A jail official said Wednesday that Swansbrough is no longer in custody. His next court date is Wednesday.
