CHICAGO — Two Chicago Police Department officers were injured and five people are being questioned after a fight Saturday in Gold Coast, according to police.
Officers responded around 5:45 p.m. to the report of multiple people fighting near West Division Street and North State Street, according to police.
The owner of Gold Coast Social said they were hosting a watch party for the Mexico and Argentina World Cup game when things got out of hand after Mexico lost.
An officer suffered bruising and abrasions and was taken to a local hospital in good condition, according to police. Another officer had an injury to their face and declined medical attention.
Five people of interest are in custody and being questioned by detectives, according to police.
The owner said the bar will be closed for the rest of the day Saturday out of respect for the injured officers but will reopen on Monday.
