While weekend arrests were down from years past, it's still an embarrassing weekend:
- Community pressure on businesses and the city to rein in Wrigleyville’s wild St. Patrick’s celebrations seems to be paying off—at least by some measures.
CWB Chicago estimates that “only” five people were arrested in connection with yesterday’s Green Invasion of the Clark Street bar strip.
That’s down sharply from 21 arrests in 2014 and 17 arrests in 2015. Seven people were arrested last year.
We also estimate that 21 people were scooped up and hauled out of Wrigleyville by ambulance crews during the revelry. That’s also down from past years.
The CWB blog has video and dispatch transcription of the stupidity.
