A Manchester man is facing a trio of charges relating to a November bar fight in Vernon, police said. 

William Conaim, 33, of 61 Rachel Rd., Manchester, was charged with first-degree criminal trespass, third-degree criminal mischief, police said.  

He posted a $2.500 bond after surrendering to police on Wednesday and is due in court on Jan. 21, police said. 

Derby resident Jeffrey Curriere, 33, was also charged for the Nov. 24 brawl at the Free Spirit Cafe on Kelly Road, police said. 

The fracas started after a dispute over payment, police said. A chair was thrown and it broke a piece of fencing, according to a police report. 

Cunaim grabbed the fence post and used it in the fight, police said. 

The owner of the establishment was hit by a piece of broken fence, according to a police report.

Curriere left the bar and police found him nearby - at Denny's in the Tri-City Plaza, according to a report. Conaim wound up in Hartford Hospital being treated for unspecified injuries and police sought a warrant for his arrest, according to a report.

If the police are wrong in a detailed report, reviewed under the supervision of the detective division, show us how.

for one no one ever "picked up the fence" --more like the chair smashed down on the person holding onto/looking thru the fence , fence broke away from the rest of the fence onto the person , that person threw the fence away . the person didn't "use" the fence as a weapon. ----- Second the two that got into the "fracas" didn't even know each other , the chair winger and the fencer , the chair winger was already in a dispute with his party and the bar , the fencer simply walked outside to have a smoke and was started with almost instantly , Bottom line I was there i seen it .
