Three Chicago Cubs fans could spend up to five years in prison if found guilty of beating up a Gurnee White Sox fan so badly that he lost his right eye.
Robert Steele, 32, of the 1800 block of Wedgewood Drive was at a birthday party for his fiancée's 2-year-old niece on July 19 in Huntley when three of his friends started teasing Steele about Cubs-Sox rivalry, said Huntley Deputy Police Chief Todd Fulton.
As the day went on and the men consumed more alcohol, authorities said the teasing continued this time about Steele's missing teeth.
Around 10:45 p.m. that evening the argument escalated, and the men began to fight. Steele was pushed to the ground and kicked several times, with one kick striking him in the right eye.
