Montville - A Bacon Academy softball coach and two opposing players were arrested Monday after a fight that police said started warming up long before the first pitch.
Montville police were called to the high school just before 6 p.m. for a report of a disturbance following the softball game.
Lt. Leonard Bunnell said the incident involved a large fight that resulted in three arrests but no injuries. Bunnell said the fight stemmed from "something that has been brewing for while, fermenting on Facebook."
Mark Correia, 49, of 54 Heatherwood Drive, Colchester, and a player from each team was charged with breach of peace. The players' names were not released because they are youthful offenders.
Bacon Academy coach Ann DiPietrro chose not to comment on the incident. She said Bacon Academy won the game. Montville's coach, Rob Alves, did not return a phone call Monday night.
