Video Of Wild Fight Outside Bar In Wicker Park
By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — A wild fight outside a Wicker Park bar was caught on tape before Chicago Police arrived to break up the brawl.
The video, which was shot by Mike Block and posted on Monday on You Tube, looks like a scene out of an action movie, complete with stolen props and a guy getting tossed through a plate-glass window.
The altercation begins outside Crocodile Lounge in the 1500 block of North Milwaukee with two men yelling and threatening each other.
“Let’s go! Let’s go!” one guy yells. “Let it be one on one, bro.”
Then a woman swipes what appears to be a mop from a cart being pushed by a person who happened to be walking past.
She hands the “weapon” to one of the men, who begins to swing it. However, the mop is pulled from his hands and used against his friend, who gets smacked in the head.
The fight eventually moves across the street where another guy falls through one of the display windows of the John Fluevog designer shoe store.
More tussling ensues on the sidewalk before the group ends up in the street, where one of the men is tossed onto a slow-moving car.
Police arrived after a few minutes and broke up the fight.
There was no word on charges, and nobody appeared to be seriously injured.
