Wrigleyville restaurant brawl caught on video

It was just after 3 am on March 24th when a fight broke out inside Bacci’s Pizza.

As bars around the crowded Wrigleyville restaurant closed for the night– angry customers were not only throwing fists but chairs and even one another as other diners tried to hold them back.

Chicago Police said two women were waiting in line to order when two other women, who were apparently drunk, began hitting them.

Some say it was an argument over line jumping.

It quickly escalated to other patrons waiting and line before spilling into the rest of the restaurant and then onto Clark street.

Nate Gill is a bouncer at the neighboring Irish Oak-  and no strangers to scuffles outside establishments in this neighborhood.

“They were swinging chairs,” he said, “the people who go to cubs games do whatever they want.”

The video, taken by a then Bacci’s employee, has gotten tens of thousands of hits on YouTube– but it happened before the start of the new season.

People out and about after Friday’s Cubs game say Cubs fans are mostly peaceful.

No one was arrested, but police are still investigating it.

You can watch the full video on YouTube here.

      Why does it have to be the Southside moving North? Why not the Northside moving South or West?

    Wrigleyville continues to be an entertainment district. The real Theatre is outside of Wrigley Field, and it's free. Well, as long as you buy a hot dog and coke and pay to park.

      Sounds like you are better off hoping on the train instead of parking. This is what kills me with these racist coments. I've been down there and it ws never an issue was te white on white crimes, they chalked it off as drunken Cubs fans, but as soon as the skin tone darkens the racial slurs pop up like zits.

    You know it is very disgusting to see how many racists are on this site by your comments. Grow up people and just state your displeasure of the event and stop bringing race and your ignoart ASSumptions. Your comments show how racist that part of town is, in fact do you even live on that side of town?

    Common Sense said:
    April 12, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    Wow….your comment is not only racist but it is totally disrespectful! What united front do you live on? There is ignorance to be found in every race. You comment is proof of that!

    Ummm, it IS commonplace in certain west and south side neighborhoods. The Cubs were not even playing on this date. Every day at work, for 20 years, I witness nonsense like this. Now these people are roaming outside their neighborhoods to cause trouble, and residents who witness this kind of behavior think its "not representative of those people"? Welcome to reality.

    You ignorant fool, it's always been over there, even when I was a girl in the 80's. Why anybody would want to come over to that racist side of town is beyond me especailly with a sad excuse of a ball club and racists like you.

    Divalicious said:

    Why don't you enlingthen us Dislike and say exactly what you mean? I mean after all we are on the world wide web and your true identy wll not be revealed. You are such a racist and let me let you in on a ittle secret about your preciouse Wrigleyville, when we were kids, late 70's early 80's it was racists like you who harrassed my dad when he would bring us to the ball park for a game. You know the days of no lights at that broken down stadium well the fans would harrass non whites which left a sour taste in my mouth even to adulthood. So when an @$$hole like you make that racist comment it just reinforce why I don't support the Cubs or their fans. I'm only sorry you weren't there to get whacked in the mouth.

    Amen. Blacks could never go to a game without being called a Ni_ _ er. Learn to spell before you start calling people savages because you sound really ignorant.
