How could I forget
He hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurting
Dropped wide open
—Pearl Jam, Jeremy
Talk about kicking people when they're down. Some Wrigleyville residents have been vocal on neighborhood websites today, saying that they were kept awake by last night's rain-delayed Pearl Jam concert that didn't end until 2:05AM.
But none of them was angry enough to lodge contemporaneous complaints about their supposed inconvenience with Chicago police.
Among the night's injuries and incarcerations in the area:
12:38AM: One person was arrested for aggravated battery of a police officer at the McDonald's across from Wrigley Field under CPD case #HW370448. In a separate, simultaneous incident at the McDonald's, an offender was arrested for beating another victim under case #HW370465.

A CWB reader has commented that the man who was seen getting beat up had been the one causing trouble, until he messed with the wrong people:
I was present when the 1000 liquors attack happened. A man was walking west on Belmont randomly spraying people with mace. When he reached the corner of Sheffield, he sprayed someone which resulted in that person and their group to then attack the man. At least 4 people had been maced by the victim before it got physical.
