At least one person was arrested for battering a victim aboard a southbound Red Line Train as it approached the Fullerton station shortly before 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. Information about charges were not immediately available, but a video of the attack has been posted to social media:
Earlier, a group of men beat and kicked another man in the 3100 block of North Broadway as the parade moved down the street behind them. Chicago police confirmed that an arrest was made for battery in the 3100 block of North Broadway at 1:50 p.m., but it was not clear if the arrest was in connection with the incident captured on this social media video:
Police this afternoon said two people were arrested in separate incidents for slapping police horses after the parade concluded. Both arrests were made near the intersection of Belmont and Clark:
• Around 4:40 p.m., 26-year-old Alysia Sanders was arrested in the 800 block of West Belmont after she slapped a police horse on its rear end, according to police.
• Police said Wagdi Elgosbi, 28, approached a police horse in the 3200 bock of North Clark around 5:20 p.m. and asked the officer riding it if he could pet the animal. When the officer denied his request, Elgosbi slapped the horse in its face, police said in an arrest report.
Elgosbi and Sanders are each charged with one count of teasing a police animal, a CPD spokesperson said. They were released on recognizance bonds. Mugshots of the two were not immediately available because the Chicago Police Department forces media outlets to wait four days before accessing photos of persons accused of misdemeanors.
Elsewhere on social media, a group of men threw up gang signs while standing next to a police car in the 3100 block of North Clark Street.
“Ouuuu lets gangbang and go fight at the pride parade,” the photo caption says, “Fucking fagkz”
The Lighter Side
Finally, in a more lighthearted vein, 2019’s Chicago Pride Parade may go down as the “Year of the Twerk.” No matter where you went, booties were shaking and buns were being grabbed. Anything stationary (and a few moving objects) within a half-mile of the parade route stood an excellent chance of being “twerked.” The CWBChicago team has quickly compiled this modest collection of twerking videos from social media (mildly NSFW).
