Whoops! We we wrong—or perhaps just optimistic—when we reported Monday that seven people had been arrested during and in the aftermath of last weekend’s Pride Fest street festival in Boystown.
In fact, EIGHT people were arrested.
And, yet another video has emerged of Chicago police and Northalsted private security attempting to reign in widely-reported street fights that resulted in at least one stabbing.
Multiple stun guns can be heard zapping in he background of the latest video as the camera moves north on Halsted near Aldine last Sunday night.
“These are young kids!” one voice is heard saying as a group tends a young person on the ground nearby.
More Arrests, Weapons Charges
• 21-year-old Renardo Coleman of the Grand Crossing neighborhood was arrested at Belmont and Halsted after police say they found him in possession of a BB gun with the orange safety tip removed to make it look like a real handgun. Coleman received a 2-day sentenced after he quickly pleaded guilty this week to possession of a replica firearm.
• 46-year-old Brian K. Page of the Near North Side was charged with assaulting an off-duty Chicago officer during one of the many disturbances at Halsted and Aldine late Sunday night.
