Reports of spontaneous street brawls in Wrigleyville and Boystown are like ghosts. People see them, but when they call on others to take a look, the brawl has disappeared.
But, a particularly scenic mobile street fight broke out this morning directly in front of Wrigley Field, 1060 W Addison. The “optics,” as public relations people say, could not be much better. Or worse, we suppose.
The 60-second dust up was captured at 2:55AM Sunday by the Wrigley Field Earth Cam, part of a worldwide webcam network.
While a bystander did call 911 about the incident, everyone was gone by the time responding officers arrived. Kind of like ghosts.
Pro tip: If you see a pack of yelling people coming at you and throwing punches, we suggest that you not (a) circle back and watch what’s happening or (b) whip out your cellphone for a hot Snapchat.
