Saturday’s night’s rough start to Chicago’s week-long gay pride celebration rolled into an equally rough Sunday night and Monday morning. A total of seven people were arrested. Six of the arrests came between 7 p.m. last night and 2 a.m. today.

According to the Chicago Police Department:

• James Cockriel, 24, of the Dunning neighborhood is charged with resisting police following an incident inside the Pride Fest grounds at 7 p.m. Sunday.

•  30-year-old Chyntell Jones of the West Pullman neighborhood is charged with battery after being arrested at Halsted and Roscoe as widespread street disturbances broke out at 2:12 a.m. Sunday.

• Deshon Mooore, 25, of Rogers Park is charged with two counts of battery after officers responded to a fight in the 7-Eleven store at 3700 block of N. Broadway around 7:15 last night, police said.

Four more people were arrested after street fights again broke out across the area early this morning. Three arrests were made near Belmont and Clark while the fourth was reported at Roscoe and Halsted. Police have not yet released details of those bookings.
