An arguement between friends spun out of control at a Pasadena home early Sunday morning prompting a SWAT team intervention, according to CBS Local.

During the melee, one of the men was attacked by several others with baseball bats, the victim told police. He was treated and eventually released from an area hospital, Pasadena police Lt. Diego Torres said.

Around 1:00 a.m. police officers dispatched to the 100 block of Eloise Avenue spoke to a man that reported he had "been assaulted in a nearby home." The victim remarked there were seven or eight people inside.

“We made announcements and no one came out and, as a precaution, was brought in SWAT,” he said. The SWAT team arrived there at about 4 a.m. “They contained the residence and called in. Additional subjects came out,” Torres said.
