Out of Control
Four people were charged this afternoon after a teen girl was critically injured during a melee in the Far South Side's Roseland neighborhood that one witness said involved up to 25 people.
Chicago police responded to 111 W. 115th St. at about 9 a.m. to a call of a disturbance...
A man who answered the phone at a nearby store said the fight broke out at about 9 a.m., just as he was opening up shop. He said the 20 to 25 people--largely teenagers--involved were punching each other and wielding bottles and bats.
The fight appeared to start when "people just started talking trash to each other," said the man, who declined to give his name.
Quick! Someone blame the police!
