The RAP began at 1:40AM CST and ended at 6:29AM. It is the 24th RAP that CWB has documented since we began keeping records in late June.
So, what were our officers tied up with? Things like this:
• Security at the Taco Bell across from Wrigley Field detained a man who tried to steal a vehicle from the restaurant parking lot. Officers arrived, but they left after the car owner decided that they "only wanted an apology." No report.
• At 1:08AM CST, a man called police after he got punched in the mouth inside of Smart Bar, 3730 N. Clark. After tying up the officers' time, the victim said he really didn't want anything done about it. No report.
• At 1:30AM CST, six police units were tied up at Bernie's bar, 3664 N. Clark, after patrons and bouncers got into a sizable disagreement and the staff asked cops to remove people from the bar. Our opinion: There should be a fee for that.
