SHAMROCK SCUFFLE: Wrigleyville "Celebration" Gets Rolling

Chicago police make the first arrest of the day as St. Patrick's celebrants fill Wrigleyville. (Video: the1stmikec)
The annual disaster called "St. Patrick's Day" in Wrigleyville is underway—and the skids are well-greased for what could become an epic sh!tshow.

The warm weather is drawing crowds bigger and earlier than last year.  And, while Alderman Tom Tunney told constituents yesterday that he had, "met with our police to develop an overall public safety plan for our neighborhood" ahead of today's events, those plans apparently do not include one of the most basic steps: No barricades have been placed along Clark Street to keep bar-goers out of traffic lanes.

Police have already made the first arrest of the day, locking a man up for allegedly battering a police officer outside of Slugger's bar at 12:21PM.

Day shift police officers are being ordered to stay on duty past the scheduled end of their shifts to handle the affairs on Clark.

We will have a full report on today's events early Sunday morning.

  5. Like the Pride Parade, Chicago is proving again to be an uncivilized, wild west town unsuitable for tourists, or most residents for that matter.

  6. Already booking my ticket out of town for Pride weekend. Many thanks to our LEOs for all of their hard work dealing with these classless drunken missing idiots. Oh, and fuck off, Tunney.

  7. Tried to contact Tunny this morning to no avail. His staff said he took a "vacation" day.

    1. He took a vacation TERM, starting February 7 when he was re-elected. Expect zilch, zero, nada, nothing, out of him or his "staff." And if anyone in his office is reading this, and I have cited incorrect data in the preceding statement, then please correct it here. Otherwise I will assume there is no contesting the accuracy of the above statement.
