County police arrested an Edgewater man Friday and--charged with striking his roommate twice with a baseball bat during an argument.

Police said James Edgerly, 32, and John Dixon were arguing after midnight in their apartment in the 800 block of Holly Ave. when a third man came out of a bedroom with an aluminum bat and struck Edgerly twice, on the arm and the leg.

Edgerly fled to the Selby Sub Shoppe in the 900 block of Mayo Road, where he stopped Officer Bradley Lytle about 1 a.m. and complained of a broken arm and injured knee.

Lytle, noticing Edgerly's arm was bleeding from the elbow and appeared disfigured, called an ambulance to take Edgerly to Anne Arundel Medical Center. Then Lytle went to Edgerly's apartment, where Dixon and Charles Hasson told Lytle that Edgerly had been choking Dixon during an argument and that Hasson had retrieved the baseball from his room to protect Dixon.

Hasson was charged with first-degree assault. Edgerly was treated and released.
