Details

A MPD officer needed to use OC spray on a Chicago man to stop him from fighting in the 600 block of University Ave. early Sunday morning. The officer was on routine patrol when two brawling men literally fell at his feet. The officer ordered them to stop, and they did temporarily. However the arrested suspect charged at the other man again, and the fight was back on. The officer brought a stop to the violence a second time, but could also see the suspect was determined to reinitiate the fisticuffs a third time. It was at this point that the officer sprayed the suspect. The man ran, but was chased down and arrested.
