Partygoers flee after police use Mace to break up a fight by West Walnut and South James Streets around 2 a.m. Sunday. Police arrived to break up a party, where approximately 700 people were in attendance. A violent altercation erupted between two females as they left the party and, when a group gathered around the fight, police used Mace to control the crowd. “Some girls were about to fight, and cops ran over and just Maced the area they were about to fight at,” said Corey Wilks, a junior from Chicago studying English. Police were not available for comment by press time.
