Mass. man accused in bat attack won't serve time

FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man accused of hitting a New York tourist three times with an aluminum baseball bat because he thought he was a Yankees fan will not serve jail time if he stays out of trouble.

The case against 21-year-old Robert Correia was continued without a finding for two years, meaning charges will be dropped if he does not get into legal trouble in that time.

Correia was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after hitting William Nestor of Northport, N.Y., with a bat following a July 4 Cape Cod fireworks show. The Yankees and Red Sox played that weekend.

Nestor said he had asked a group to stop taunting people with New York license plates. He was not seriously injured.

Correia claimed self defense.
