Men arrested after baseball bat fight

Police say they've arrested two men who were fighting with a baseball bat.

News 12 Connecticut was there yesterday when police pulled over an SUV belonging to Romi Leska, of Norwalk.

Leska says he and Gjon Marleku were playing cards at the Black Stone Steak House when the conversation turned to politics. Police say that's when things "got ugly."

"The suspect was asked to leave, according to the victim and during that time, there was some kind of altercation and then he was struck with the bat," says Deputy Chief Thomas Kulhawik, of Norwalk.

Leska says he hit Marleku in self-defense.

Both men were arrested.
